In a rather bizarre statement, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said drinking juice in the dark is the same as drinking alcohol.

“Such big positive change has come in, why ruin it for a peg or two? Turn off the lights and drink juice, you will feel it’s the same,” the Bihar CM said.

Earlier this year, Kumar banned alcohol in the Indian state and by the looks of it he derived immense satisfaction from it. “The happiness and satisfaction that I achieved from banning alcohol was something I never achieved before,” CM Kumar said.

Needless to say, Twitter made much of his statement.
