Bhushan fires fresh salvo at Kejriwal over liquor policy

Noida: Firing a fresh salvo at Chief Minister Arvind Kerjriwal over "anti-people" liquor policy, former AAP leader Prashant Bhushan today asked whether he will resume opening of liquor vends after one year when the MCD and Punjab elections are over.

Questioning why opening of liquor vends has been suspended only for a year, he demanded shutting down of such shops which were opened without approval from local residents.

The Swaraj Abhiyan founder said there was no legal sanction granted to Mohalla Sabhas to close the liquor vends and accused Kejriwal of misleading the people.

"Why has Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's announcement of not opening any new liquor shops been made only for one year. Does Kejriwal want to resume his anti-people liquor policy after the MCD elections in Delhi and Assembly elections in Punjab," he said at press conference held here.
