Ahmedabad: A video of Jagmal Wala, an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader from Gujarat, is going viral on social media. In this video, he is seen standing on the stage and talking about alcohol. AAP leaders are telling the people of Gujarat, who have complete prohibition, that liquor is not bad, drink if you have strength.
Jagmal Wala, who glorifies liquor, has been made a candidate from the Somnath assembly seat on behalf of AAP. His video is from a public meeting held on Wednesday (September 21, 2022), which is going viral on September 22. In the viral video, he tells Gujaratis that even big doctors and IAS-IPS officers drink alcohol. Apart from these, the whole world enjoys it. Only Gujaratis have been banned.
In the viral clip, he is saying, 'There are 800 crore people in the world and there are 196 countries. Alcohol is allowed to be sold in 196 countries. India also has 130-140 crore people. They are allowed to drink alcohol. These prohibitions are only in Gujarat, which has a population of 6.5 crores. This proves that alcohol is not a bad thing. The only problem is that we don't drink alcohol. It's not wrong if alcohol drinks us. But, if alcohol starts drinking us, then it is wrong. If you have strength, drink alcohol. This is not wrong at all. Big doctors and IPS-IAS officers drink alcohol.
After Jagmal's statement, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) questioned it and asked the Aam Aadmi Party leader to apologize. The BJP demands that such a Gujarat should not be defamed and liquor should not be promoted.
