Last month, party leader K C Tyagi, who is also a Rajya Sabha MP, held a meeting with various organisations under the umbrella of Lok Sangharsh Morcha, which has been demanding a ban on liquor in the state. In May, Nitish had met members of the Morcha in Delhi and had assured support to their campaign.
