The BJP's Jharkhand unit on Thursday termed Bihar government's decision of tax holiday to liquor factories in that state as "contradictory' while demanding a ban on booze in other states.

"On one hand Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is going to other states and giving statements on liquor ban and on the other he is giving a tax holiday to liquor factories," BJP Jharkhand unit spokesman Prem Mittal said in a release, adding, these were contradictory decisions.

Mittal asked why Kumar had remained silent on a reported letter by Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das to his Bihar counterpart questioning the tax holiday.

Echoing Mittal's statement, another BJP leader Praveen Prabhakar accused Kumar of encouraging foreign liquor production and bottling through the tax holiday and said Kumar's claim on a complete ban on liquor was "hollow".
