Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday laughed off the loss of nearly Rs. 2 crore – an amount that, by some estimates, is expected to incur by the homeopathic doctors and medicine outlets following the ban on spirit as a result of total prohibition in Bihar to go in effect come April 1.

"I don't have any sympathy for a loss of merely Rs. 2 crore when the state is expected to incur a loss of Rs. 4,000 crore due to imposition of prohibition in Bihar. The loss of Rs. 2 crore is too small to worry about it," the Chief Minister, who considers a few crore here and a few crore there too small to lose sleep over, said while reacting to a question by the President of the Bihar State Homeopathic Association (BHSA) Dr. Daud Ali.

As reported, the homeopathic doctors and manufacturers have raised concerns about the spirit, also known as 'mother tincture', which is required in mixing homeopathic medicines, currently in the inventory, and valued at Rs. 2 crore.

Disregarding the cascading effect of the homeopathic market and its millions of consumers, Kumar told Daud to destroy all alcohol solutions or prepare to face raids.

"Those who are found to be hoarding spirit after April 1 would be caught and severely punished," the Chief Minister said.
