The number of people who have died in Chhapra, Bihar, as a result of drinking fake alcohol has risen to 66. On Wednesday, there were the earliest reports of the event. The Nitish Kumar administration outlawed the sale and use of alcohol in Bihar in April 2016.
Chirag Paswan, the leader of the Lok Janshakti Party (R) and a member of parliament, urged that a FIR be filed against Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar, for the Chapra hooch disaster as the dead toll is expected to rise.
Chirag Paswan stated that he did not believe that those who perished in the hooch catastrophe had just passed away, adding that he held the Bihar chief minister accountable for the crime.
Assembly: Nitish, the chief minister of Bihar, loses his calm
Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar, lost his composure in the Assembly when BJP MLAs attempted to criticise him in relation to the Chhapra hooch disaster, which has resulted in 66 deaths to date.
Inside the legislature, Nitish Kumar said, “Kya ho Gaya, jehrili sharab, halla kar rahe ho tum log.” Also observed was the JDU leader motioning for the BJP MLAs to stay silent.
This occurred when debates about the hooch disaster and Patna’s use of lathicharge on job applicants were taking place.
In April 2016, the Nitish Kumar administration forbade the sale and use of alcohol
A considerable proportion of women voters who were frequently perceived as victims of domestic violence at the hands of inebriated men supported Bihar’s decision to completely ban the sale and use of alcohol in the state in April 2016.
However, the selling of alcohol on the black market and fatalities caused by the drinking of phoney liquor produced locally continue to occur throughout the state.
In Chhapra, the families of the deceased people said that their loved ones passed away as a result of drinking poisonous alcohol. The event happened in the Yadu Mor and Doila villages, which are both in the Isuapur police station’s area.
