Will take everyone on board, says Baghel

Wednesday, 13 February 2019 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Tuesday reiterated in the state assembly that his government is committed for total prohibition of alcohol in the state but his government will take everyone on board before taking a final decision.

He was replying to the question raised by BJP member Ajay Chandrakar and supplementary question of Marwahi MLA Ajit Jogi on same issue. Baghel said, “Government is committed for total prohibition in the state and I will go ahead with it.” Former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi raised the issue strongly in assembly and questioned the delay in issuing order despite the Congress made the commitment in its poll manifesto.

Responding to Jogi’s query, Baghel said, “Before implementation, Government wants to see as how those states having implemented has fared. Had it been successful or beginning of door to door service?”

He further said, “Two separate committees have been constituted, one will consider the political angle and second one will look into liquor as a social evil. A sudden decision taken can push many people to death.”

When interrupted by Jogi, Chief Minister said, “The mandate has not been received for just 50 days but for a full five-year term. What has been said is being done and it will be done.”
