Didn’t Nitish Kumar ban alcohol consumption in Bihar? But then, as former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Friday, there are special rules for the rich and powerful. The Rashtriya Janta Dal has shared a video alleging that the Janta Dal Union's state vice president Vishal Gaurav is seen partying with alcohol and doing the infamous nagin dance.
Someone in his friend’s circle managed to ciculate the video, and it fell into the hands of the Rashtriya Janta Dal that immediately tweeted the same.
The Bihar government has already issued instructions to seal the borders of five worst-affected districts. Siwan, Gopalganj, Nawada, Begusarai, parts of Patna and Munger have been identified as hot spots.
District Magistrate of Patna K Ravi asked the sub-divisional magistrate of Barh to seal the inter-district border connecting Patna to Begusarai and Lakhisarai. Five new positive cases were found in Begusarai on Thursday. All of them were from the Tablighi Jamaat and stayed in the same village.
Bihar Health Minister, Mangal Pandey, admitted it was for the first time since the outbreak of the virus that 20 fresh positive cases have been found in a single day in the state. In his home district of Siwan, nine new cases were found in Panjwar village. All of them are of the same family. A member of the family had returned from Oman last month. The District Magistrate ordered the adjoining villages of Tari Barar, Miyan Chandi and Amhara to be closed for outsiders and declared a containment zone.
