Court gives green signal for anti-liquor human chain in Bihar

The Patna High Court has given the Bihar government green signal to go ahead with its massive human chain to promote prohibition on Saturday.

The court has summoned the Chief Secretary and DGP to ensure that  participation school children should not be mandatory and the programme should not affect traffic. The chief secretary and the DGP assured the court on Thursday that the programme will not affect the traffic public and the government has taken steps for alternative arrangements for traffic.



Officials told that vehicles will not be blocked on national highways completely between 9 am and 3 pm for the event.

"The court was given an undertaking by the Bihar government for not involving students in the human chain event mandatory, after which it was given a green signal. Next hearing in the case is on January 28", reported India today, quoting a petitioner.

The state government had earlier announced its plan to form world’s longest human chain by participating about 20 million people on Saturday to promote  prohibition.
