Stung by fire incidents in various parts of Bihar due to searing heat conditions, the state government has come up with a solution, which says no cooking.
Yes, the state govt has come up with a bizarre solution of ‘cooking will not be allowed between 9 am and 6 pm during the summer’. And those who violate it, can be jailed for up to two years.
The Nitish Kumar governemnet has also banned the religious functions that involve fire.
The logic behind this bizarre notice is that the heavy winds pick up sparks from cooking fires and ignite straw huts.
