The JD(U) state president said that the party is aiming to stand on its own feet before the scheduled assembly elections in 2018. He said that Bihar Chief Minister and party president Nitish Kumar is scheduled to hold a rally next month in the state, calling for a ban on liquor in the state.
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.
