Kudos BJP! Illegal liquor shops in ‘Delhi’ to shut down

Kudos! To Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for compelling a roll back in excise policy and closing down all the liquor shops those had opened across Delhi NCR since last few months. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government had allegedly chose the easiest way to fetch money for the then Punjab, and Goa Assembly elections.

Not only the safety and security of Delhi was compromised as liquor mafias from outside Delhi were enjoying all the privileges but the AAP government had flouted Master Plan and given illegal licences to liquor mafias allowing them to open shops in front of religious, educational, and residential places. According to Master Plan of Delhi opening of liquor shops is prohibited having religious, educational places within 100 metres radius.

AAP transformed the city into a liquor capital. Women in residential areas were angry and requested Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to close the outlets but it was of no use as for Kejriwal government it was not an important issue. Finally, Lieutenant Governor took the issue and compelled AAP government to respond and termed it as a scam.
