PATNA: Bihar's Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav on Saturday dared new Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to ban liquor and set up an "anti-Daru squad" on the lines of the much hyped anti-Romeo squad.

"Liquor is dangerous, it pollutes health and society. Yogiji don't divert people's attention and constitute anti-Daru squad (anti-liquor squad)," Tejaswi, the younger son of Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, told media here.

Tejaswi said if Adityanath is a 'Yogi' and an honest advocate of religion, he should order a total liquor ban in Uttar Pradesh like in Bihar.

The Nitish Kumar-led Grand Alliance government enforced total prohibition on April 5 last year in the state.
