Patna : Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on December 13 said here that a 3,007 km long human chain – from North to South Bihar and from East to Western  Bihar – will be formed to campaign for total prohibition on January 21 next year.

Nitish said routes for the human chain have been finalised in consultation with the DMs and SPs.

All the human chains will merge at Mahatma Gandhi bridge on ganga river, the CM said.
Low flying helicopters would monitor the formation of human chain. All schools and colleges will remain closed to facilitate students and teachers to join the chain. Nitish said right from the chief minister to a village mukhiya would join the human chain.
