Kohima, Mar 23 (UNI) Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio today admitted in the floor of the house that the prohibition policy on liquor was a failure in the state.

Replying to a cut motion, Mr Rio said that increasing the number of excise departmental staff will not solve the problem of bootlegging as there was huge demand for liquor.

He said it was the duty of all to create awareness against liquor abuse in the society.

Replying to another cut motion on land allotments, Mr Rio admitted that government lands were illegaly alloted to their relatives by some government officials and it was difficult to regain those land now.

The Chief Minister informed the house that he has already issued directions to all the departments not to allot any government land to any individual and to get land documents of all the government lands in the state.
