Patna: A day after he was heartily patronized by the Vishwakarma, or Lohar, community, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday was honored by the people of Kushwaha community who thanked him for imposing prohibition in Bihar and wished him full success in its implementation.

Speaking on the occasion, Kumar once again justified his decision to make Bihar a dry state reiterating there was not a force in the world that would make him change his mind on prohibition.

Accusing the cops of 'dereliction of duties' for their inability to enforce what is being described as the 'Talibani' law of Nitish Kumar, the Chief Minister asked them to quit the police service as there were many others who were more than willing to fill in the vacancies created by them.

So far nearly a dozen policemen have been suspended for no fault of their own. Their only crime was that someone in their precinct was found drinking liquor or was found in possession of liquor bottles.

"Those who are found guilty of failing to perform their duties will be dealt with strictly," he said.
