Mumbai, May 20: Maharashtra unit of Janata Dal (United) has sought that the state should emulate Bihar government in enforcing a total ban on sale and consumption of liquor.

"If states like Gujarat, Mizoram, Kerala and Bihar can ban alcohol consumption in their respective states then why not Maharashtra," Shyam Bhusevar, President of Janata Dal (U), Maharashtra, said.

"Bihar government has banned sale and consumption of liquor in the state and set an example before the country," Bhusevar told reporters here.

"If an economically backward state like Bihar can declare state-wide ban on liquor and forgo the revenue generated from its sale and consumption then why is it becoming difficult for a financially strong state like Maharashtra to ban liquor," he said.

Bhusevar has written to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to ban liquor consumption and sale in Maharashtra.
