Why is liquor ban not being reviewed?,asks Chirag Paswan

Why is liquor ban not being reviewed? Is liquor smuggling not going on? Everyone is getting it. Govt & admn are colluding. There is not one minister in Bihar govt who doesn't know about it. If you don't want to review it, it means you yourself are involved, said Chirag Paswan, LJP.

Everyone knows where the money is going, CM has to contest election & do a lot of things. All of this is a matter of investigation. It'll be investigated by our govt - that where is all the money of liquor smuggling, '7 Nischay' scheme & funds by centre going, said Chirag Paswan, LJP

I said that if they're guilty, they'll be sent to jail after probe. How can it be possible that CM doesn't know about large scale scams & corruption? He's involved too. If not, it'll be clear in a probe. But people & I believe that he's involved, he is corrupt, said Chirag Paswan, LJP
