Opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav had gone to attend the assembly when he was informed about the presence of liquor bottles in the assembly premises and he rushed to the spot to see it for himself.

“Liquor bottles are now being found in the assembly premises. Liquor ban has become a big joke now,” Tejaswi told the media on Tuesday.

He alleged Nitish Kumar’s police were arresting only the “small fries” while the big fishes are roaming scot free.

“Amazing! Liquor bottles recovered inside Bihar assembly premises. Winter session is going on now. Liquor of different brands is available only at a distance of a few steps from the Chief Minister’s chamber. Amidst tight security, liquor is being available in the assembly in the current session itself, just imagine the rest of Bihar! Embarrassing!” Tejashwi said in a series of tweets in Hindi.

Bihar imposed total prohibition more than five year back in April 2016. Apart from this, the chief minister has been reviewing the liquor ban on time to time yet liquor remains easily available in the state.
