Sanjay Raut’s argument
A few days ago, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut defended the government on the issue, saying that the Uddhav Thackeray government had approved the new policy. Under which wine can now be sold in grocery stores and supermarkets in the state. Raut has endorsed the government’s decision and said it is in the interest of farmers. He said that this would help in doubling the income of farmers.
Approved with conditions
A day after the Maharashtra cabinet allowed the sale of ‘wine’ to supermarkets and shops with certain conditions, Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut on Friday said those who were protesting the decision were anti-farmers. Said it can sell 1,000 square feet and more supermarkets and shops. Sell wine on payment of license fee, although criteria for sale of wine, such as minimum distance from schools and places of worship, as well as local prohibition laws will be followed.
Imtiaz JalilThreatened to break into the shop
MIM MP Imtiaz Jalil has strongly opposed the Maharashtra government’s decision to sell wine in state shops as well. He warned that after the order of the government, if any liquor comes in the shop for the first time, I will go and break it myself. “I will do this against Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar,” he said. Jalil said the government was arguing that the decision would benefit farmers. If this is the case then the production of charas and marijuana in the fields should also be allowed.
