TDP encouraging liquor consumption

Hyderabad, July 15: YSR Congress has said that TDP government has been concentrating more on schemes where commercial element is more and ignoring other issues without taking social considerations into account.

'While NTR Srujana Sravanthi scheme which supplies 20 liters of drinking water for Rs 2 has been ignoring Chandrababu Naidu government has been concentrating more on allotting distillery licenses as there is scope for corruption in it,' party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here on Friday.

While Chandrababu Naidu has promised to do away with belt shops before elections, he did not keep it up but on the other hand has been giving permission for manufacturing of more liquor and there is no check on cheap liquor, he said.

While schemes like drinking water and others are put on the back burner, the government has been patronizing schemes which can give kickbacks, he said.

While earlier governments had issued a GO to keep liquor away from highways, Chandrababu Naidu has withdrawn it and made availability of liquor more easy at all places and at all times, he said.
