BJP: Villagers against liquor shops



New Delhi: Leader of Opposition in Delhi assembly Ramvir Singh Bidhuri on Saturday said people of Badarpur village have decided in a meeting that they will not allow any new liquor shop to open in their areas.
Bidhuri, who also participated in the meeting, said that under the new excise policy, liquor shops would be opened in many areas of the capital. “It will entangle the younger generation in the quagmire of liquor consumption and put the safety of women in danger. But the AAP government is not concerned about it,” said Bidhuri. The Badarpur MLA claimed that liquor shops are being opened in densely populated areas and it will become difficult for women and children to pass through the streets where liquor shops are located.
The villagers are planning to meet chief minister Arvind Kejriwal with a memorandum and demand that the liquor policy should be withdrawn.
