After a ban on alcohol in Bihar state, the state has now gone ahead and banned Pan Masala and Gutkha. The ban has been implemented with a aim of improving public health in Bihar. Bihar has been one of the worst affected states from Gutkha and Pan Masala consumption and it ruins the health of the younger generation quickly. This is a good step taken by the state government, especially considering the fact that Gutkha & Pan Masala provides good revenue to the state government.
Twitter appreciated the step taken by the Bihar Government. Here are a few tweets showing the same:
