On Saturday, Janata Dal-United (JDU) President Lalan Singh said that the alcohol ban will continue in the state of Bihar.
There were rumors that the Nitish Kumar-led government may discontinue the alcohol ban law.
But Mr. Singh cleared the air that the decision of alcohol ban would not be reversed.
"We have law pertaining to murder, still murders take place all over the world. Similarly, liquor prohibition laws will remain in Bihar. We will take strong action against the accused involved in making hooch which led to mass deaths in Bihar." he said.
"We did speedy trials of the accused and will do the same against the culprits involved in making hooch and killing people. No one will be allowed to go unpunished," he also said.
