Bhadohi, May 10: JD(U) chief and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will launch his party's election campaign for the 2017 Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh by addressing a workers' rally in Varanasi on May 12 with prohibition as the main electoral issue.

"Nitish Kumar will address a workers' meeting in Varanasi on May 12 to launch UP poll campaign with focus on prohibition," Bihar Mahila JD(U) president Kanchan Gupta told reporters here last night.

Claiming that crime has declined by almost 40 per cent in Bihar after prohibition was imposed and women were happy because of it, Gupta said her party was focusing on women voters in the Uttar Pradesh elections.

The Bihar example of establishing "samtamulak samaj" (society with equal opportunity for all) can be repeated in Uttar Pradesh, Gupta said.
