“Ever since alcohol ban was implemented, Nitish & Company has been claiming that the law and order situation has improved. While the figures of April did show a fall in crime rate, those of May counter the claim,” former deputy CM and BJP functionary Sushil Kumar Modi said after his weekly ‘janata darbar.’
Modi presented data collected from the state government’s official website and said cognisable offences rose up to 16,208 in May from 14,279 in April this year.
As per the data, 100 robbery cases were registered in April which went upto 154 in May, which is an increase of 54 per cent.
Similarly, 638 cases of kidnapping were reported in May which was 599 in April.
The government has not uploaded the crime figures for June so far.
Modi charged the state government with formulating a draconian excise law and said, “The same government which facilitated liquor consumption for 10 years has now made a ‘Talibani Act’ to enforce prohibition overnight instead of creating awareness about it.”
