“The Jharkhand government here is issuing licenses to liquor traders only to generate revenue,” Prasad claimed.

Accusing Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of promoting communalism, he appealed to the people to unitedly fight for social justice.

Yadav said JD(U), RJD, Congress and the Babulal Marandi-led Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik) would be the alternative force to BJP and JMM in Jharkhand.
