Is AP Also Following TS To Become Alcoholic State?

Election Results: Liquor Sales Banned In Hyderabad From June 4 To 5Election Results: Liquor Sales Banned In Hyderabad From June 4 To 5

Hyderabad, May 15 (Hydnow): Is Andhra Pradesh also following Telangana to become the Alcoholic Pradesh? Yes, it seems that the ruling YSRCP Chief and Chief Minister of AP Jagan Mohan Reddy is following the same steps as it is being in Telangana ignoring the promise given to the women voters to “prohibit alcohol in a phased manner in the state.

It may be recalled that the YSRCP manifesto for the last election, ‘Navaratnalu,’ said that many families in the state were financially ruined due to alcohol consumption. Many were suffering from various related ailments and were not able to get treatment due to their financial constraints. In an advertisement on 30 May 2019, on the day he took oath as the Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy reiterated his government’s commitment to the gradual phase-out of liquor in the state, after which there has been no progress on the matter – save for political rehabilitation of Vallamreddy Lakshman Reddy as the chairman of the Liquor Prohibition Campaign Committee on 24 October 2019. The YSRCP government took a complete “U” turn to increase the consumption of liquor, instead, in the state, grossly disappointed those who voted for him on this account.

In the past four years, the liquor policy was carried out from a business perspective only. The government began to operate its own liquor shops through the new excise policy in 2019-20 instead of controlling them. In 2021-22, the government dishonored its promise to cut down on the number of government-run liquor shops. In 2022-23, the government planned to transfer VAT revenue from liquor consumption to the State Beverages Corporation and planned to raise loans of Rs 25,000 crore to be repaid in 20 years.
