After Bihar, it’s West Bengal which is likely to ban liquor.
Forward Bloc party MLA Ali Imran Ramz raised a question in the state Assembly that if Bihar can ban alcohol, why can’t West Bengal?
The question was raised while Ramz was taking part in the discussion on state budget. Ban of alcohol can curb the law and order fiasco in the state, said the MLA.
As per a report in India Today, the ruling party MLAs objected to the statement.
However, Left Front legislative party leader and CPI(M) state representative Sujan Chakraborty supported Ramz and blamed alcohol for several political disputes.
Also, Congress MLA Manas Bhunia appreciated Ramz for his proposal, report India Today. Bhunia raised fingers at the TMC saying that the government is trying to promote alcohol consumption.
If West Bengal agrees to ban liquor in the state, it will be fifth one after Bihar, Mizoram, Nagaland and Gujarat.
