Darbhanga: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday urged his Uttar Pradesh counterpart Yogi Adityanath, who visits Bihar on Friday, not to come 'empty handed' but implement the liquor ban and 50% reservation for women in local bodies.

"You (Adityanath) should take cue from us and implement liquor ban and 50% reservation for women in local bodies," Kumar told a public meeting here after laying foundations of development projects worth Rs 300 crore.

Taking a dig at the much-hyped Darbhanga visit of Yogi Adityanath on Friday, Kumar said "He must be coming empty handed whereas I am here to launch various development schemes."

The Bihar Chief Minister also had a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for non-fulfillment of various promises made to Bihar during the 2014 general elections and assembly polls in the state the next year saying "We implement whatever works we promise, but others forget about it."

Kumar took a potshot at cow vigilantes and said that they should learn to take care of stray bovines before taking law into their own hands to deal with those involved in trade of animals.

He claimed that the liquor ban has become a runaway success in Bihar and asked BJP-ruled states to follow suit.

Kumar said that his government will launch a total de-addiction drive as follow up action after the success of the liquor ban.
