Nitish cites China’s ban on opium to buttress prohibition

Strongly pleading for prohibition, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday cited China’s example, saying it moved forward on the path of development after shunning opium.

Linking development with prohibition, Kumar said China was “drowned” in opium and moved fast on the path of development after shunning it.

“People want that we compete with China... will India face China if its younger generation is drowned in liquor?” Kumar said after flagging off a ‘Jagriti yatra’ in connection with 350th Prakash Parva from Harmandir Sahib here.
