The other day men retired from the Indian army did something they are not trained for - they blocked a main road leading to the Danapur cantonment. Reason: They were protesting against the Bihar prohibition.
Ex-servicemen are entitled to 6 bottles of alcohol per month but in Bihar under the new prohibition laws they cannot take the bottles home.
They will be arrested and locked up with criminals and petty theives in Bihar's overcrowded prisons.
So they decided to protest.
The Patna DM and SP stayed away from the protest site and the inspectors were no match from the angry jawans.
Its only an assurance from the top Brass at Danapur cantonement that they stopped their protests.
An ex armyman is among those who has filed a PIL in the Patna High Court saying the alcohol ban law is a violation of human rights.
Thousands of Biharis are in prison under the draconian law and three cheers to our ex-jawans who have been brave enough to oppose this law...
They might well prove to be the bottle-openers in Bihar
