Tejaswi Yadav dares Yogi Adityanath to ban liquor in UP
Patna, March 25 (IANS) Bihar's Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav on Saturday dared new Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to ban liquor and set up an "anti-Daru squad" on the lines of the much hyped anti-Romeo squad.
"Liquor is dangerous, it pollutes health and society. Yogiji don't divert people's attention and constitute anti-Daru squad (anti-liquor squad)," Tejaswi, the younger son of Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, told media here.
Tejaswi said if Adityanath is a 'Yogi' and an honest advocate of religion, he should order a total liquor ban in Uttar Pradesh like in Bihar.
The Nitish Kumar-led Grand Alliance government enforced total prohibition on April 5 last year in the state.
