Ground reality something else

Fed up with the continuous death due to spurious liquor, the demand for ending prohibition has started rising from the side of women. Supporting the demand of women, the intelligentsia of Bihar has also started coming in their support. Muzaffarpur’s social worker and poet Dr. Sanjay PankajIt is said that look, this was bound to happen. Even then women were troubled by drunken husbands. Prohibition means getting rid of the addiction of drinking. Not only fear, terror and the stick of law, people should have been made morally aware as well, which the government could not do. They don’t know where the liquor goes from the police station. Doesn’t the administration know where the truckloads of liquor is coming from? Wine is being produced in every house. Their officers are also drinking, doctors are also drinking. Law & Order is over. Murder is happening every day. It cannot be argued that a man commits murder after drinking alcohol. Dr. Sanjay Pankaj angrily says that the murderer can do without drinking alcohol. Nitish Kumar are people of unstable mind. Some women said to stop drinking, but the mass death that is happening today. When liquor was sold At that time there was no mass death like this. There is no village where Dalit women are not involved in brewing. You banned toddy. Till date, it has not been heard that someone has killed someone by drinking toddy.

Life is going through ‘Jam’

Dr. Sanjay Pankaj says that the way the afflicted women are lamenting today. They are facing family and social loss. Lamenting of women is not sending a good message. Women were not asking for prohibition as much as in today’s date. After being widowed more than that, women are pleading to start liquor. Someone’s brother, husband and son died. When the liquor was open, he used to torture his wife only after drinking, but even the son used to stand against the father. There were also people who punished the drinker in the society. But the one who died, his family is over. At the same time, Naval Sharma was the senior spokesperson of JDU when there was a demand from women to start liquor. It is said that in the beginning prohibition was welcomed by women because they felt that their husbands would no longer drink alcohol. Exactly the opposite happened with women. After prohibition, women had raised a lot of hope. Voted enthusiastically for Nitish Kumar. Women did not know that Nitish Kumar would prove to be a big failure in implementing prohibition. Naval Sharma says that the way liquor ban was implemented in Bihar, women’s kitchen became more pressurized. Two country liquor used to be available for Rs. 40 in rural areas, now it is available for Rs. 150.

Fix for women folks – 

Naval Sharma, while supporting the demand of abolition of prohibition law on behalf of women, says that the drinker who used to drink earlier is still drinking today. Naval Sharma says that he did not find a single such person in the entire society, especially in the working class of the rural areas. One who used to drink alcohol earlier and has given up alcohol after prohibition. This is having a direct effect on the housewives, because the bottle which earlier used to come in forty, is now available in one and a half hundred. This has directly affected the budget of women. Organizations running on the crutches of the Nitish Kumar government, such as AN Sinha Institute, etc., throw dust in the eyes of the public that there has been a decrease in domestic violence in Bihar. Crime has come down. Naval Sharma says that if Nitish Kumar has moral strength, he would not conduct surveys from government institutions. They should get it surveyed by a retired judge. Reality will come out. Nitish Kumar talks about reduction in crime and NCRB says something else. Domestic violence decreased slightly in the year prohibition was implemented, then increased rapidly thereafter. Naval Sharma said in a conversation with NBT Online that the NCRB figures expose Nitish Kumar’s claims. Atrocities and crimes against women have increased more than before. Now prohibition has become a noose around the neck for women.
