Cornering Punjab Governor and UT-Chandigarh Administrator Banwarilal Purohit regarding drugs, Punjab's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday alleged that a large amount of illegal liquor is being smuggled from Chandigarh to the state every day.
AAP’s Punjab unit’s chief spokesperson Malvinder Singh Kang, questioning the Governor, said that the Governor constantly questions the Punjab Government every day on the issue of drugs, but “he’s not saying or taking any action to stop liquor smuggling from Chandigarh to Punjab”.
He said that a large quantity of illegal and adulterated liquor is being smuggled into Punjab every day from Chandigarh. “Due to this, the liquor mafia is getting encouraged and Chandigarh is also facing economic loss,” Kang said.
“Since the Governor of Punjab is the Administrator of Chandigarh, it is his responsibility to stop this smuggling,” he said while appealing to the Governor that being the Administrator of Chandigarh, he should take appropriate measures to stop liquor smuggling.
He said that there is a big difference between questioning others and correcting oneself. “Therefore, now the Governor should improve the administration of Chandigarh and curb the liquor mafia before questioning the Punjab government on the same matter,” Kang added.
