Mumbai: The opposition is strongly opposing the Maharashtra government's new liquor policy. The Uddhav government's decision to sell wine in supermarket-grocery stores has now been opposed by the MP of Asaduddin Owaisi's party AIMIM. AIMIM MP Imtiyaz Jaleel said, "If the government gives such permission in Aurangabad, then supermarket-grocery stores will be vandalized.''
Addressing the same press conference, Jaleel questioned the reason behind the new liquor policy. Not only this, he said, if the state government really has problems with the farmers, then the approval for the cultivation of hemp should be given. AIMIM MP and Maharashtra party chief Jaleel said, "Instead of alcohol, the government could have supported milk bars and encouraged individuals to drink it, which would benefit the farmers. But this government is only concerned about the rupee. This decision to allow the sale of liquor in shops will destroy our culture.''
Talking further, Jaleel said, "They will not allow this decision of the government to be implemented in Aurangabad. They will not let such wine bars open." I challenge CM Uddhav Thackeray, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and all the three ruling parties to open such wine bars in Aurangabad. I urge women to vandalize such shops. If anyone plans to open such a shop, we will demolish that shop.
