Having received acclaim for his liquor ban decision, the Bihar government led by Nitish Kumar is now planing to campaign against dowry and child marriage as social evils. Sources within his party also claim that state government might even come out with a law on these two subjects. It need be mentioned that Nitish Kumar has recently switched over to alliance with the BJP and would not want his popularity to go down in any case or to be eclipsed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This rooting out social evils from society would provide him with such a plank and he would be able to stand his ground in 2019 national elections or even state elections.
