Kumar said almost 6000 liquor vends will have the choice of selling products of Sudha, which is run by the Bihar State Co-Operative Milk Producers Federation Ltd as it will give a boost to the state-run entity's business and also provide employment to people running these shops.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of his party JD(U)'s National Executive meet, Kumar said he was 'absolutely firm' about his plan to impose prohibition in the state, saying it was his 'commitment' and that millions of women in the state want it.
"There was this apprehension about loss of employment for people involved in this trade. So my government will give them the choice of selling Sudha products," he said, noting that most of these vends are in prime locations. He also allayed apprehensions of bootlegging following the liquor ban and said, "A good thing cannot be stopped due to such fears and his government was taking measures to deal with its fallout.
"It will be the joint responsibility of the District Magistrate and Superintendent of Police," he said, adding thousands of self-help groups will assist the government in making the measure a success.
