In view of the recent deaths of poisonous liquor in Uttar Pradesh, Samajwadi Party (SP) President Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday alleged that the BJP government is not concerned about the health and life of the general public and the illegal liquor business in the state Moving under protection. He alleged that despite the chief minister’s “boastfulness, the business of poisonous liquor is going on at a double speed and so far dozens of people have lost their lives by drinking poisonous liquor.” The spirits of liquor mafia have increased so much that they are openly ‘smuggling’ and selling illicit liquor while defying the governmental laws.
In a statement issued by the SP office, Akhilesh said, “The truth is that smuggling of liquor and making and selling poisonous liquor is being done illegally only with the information of Police and Excise Department in the state. In Phulpur Kotwali area, seven people of Imliya village died after taking liquor from the contract of indigenous liquor and many villagers are in critical condition.
In Kothi police station area of Barabanki, the BJP leader beat up the salesmen for not giving the borrowed liquor. BJP leaders have taken many contracts. They also appear to be quick to earn goods. 12 people have died in Barabanki.
The statement said that 12 people died in Hapur Kotwali area after drinking poisonous liquor. There were 64 deaths in Saharanpur, while two people died in Firozabad. Six people died after drinking poisonous liquor in Phulpur area of Prayagraj. There have also been deaths in Etawah, Rampur and Jalaun. He said that the process of death due to drinking poisonous liquor continues unabated. Many painful incidents have happened in the past, but no one learns from them.
Yadav alleged that the extent of the BJP government’s insensitivity is that it has not yet become serious in trying to crack down on those who do business of fake liquor. He said that this government has not taken concrete steps towards eradicating fake liquor traders and the government should also take strict action by investigating departmental involvement in it.
