Delhi’s new excise policy: Liquor for all!

Congress leader and former Revenue Minister Haroon Yusuf fumes, “Look how their priorities have changed over the years. Earlier the focus was on Mohalla clinics but today their priorities are opening up liquor shops in every Mohalla. So huge is their greed that many of these vends are now also close to schools.”

Vijender Gupta, senior BJP leader and former Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Legislative Assembly says, “They are playing with health of the people just to earn some additional revenue. The Kejriwal government is using all its marketing skills to promote drinking in the capital.”Asked if his party would take up the issue in courts he retorted, “We will take this issue to the streets.”

Shoaib Iqbal, AAP MLA from Matia Mahal, is embarrassed. The veteran Delhi politician and six-time MLA says apologetically, “People have started protesting against liquor shops in residential areas. I am trying to get them shifted out in my constituency.”
