Which ruling forces are giving protection to spurious liquor mafias in Gujarat: Rahul Gandhi

In the wake of the spurious liquor scandal in Gujarat, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday expressed concern over the spurious liquor and narcotics trade in the state and asked which ruling forces were giving protection to the “mafias” involved.

Gujarat’s Minister of State for Home Harsh Sanghvi has said that 42 people from Botad and neighbouring Ahmedabad district died due to consumption of spurious liquor on July 25, while 97 people are still admitted to hospitals in Bhavnagar, Botad and Ahmedabad.

“In the dry state of Gujarat, many houses were destroyed by the consumption of spurious liquor. Medicines worth billions are also being recovered from there continuously,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.

It is a matter of great concern in the land of Bapu (Mahatma Gandhi) and Sardar (Vallabhbhai) Patel, who are these people who are doing indiscriminate drug trade? Former Congress President said.

He asked which ruling forces were giving security to these “mafias”.

Fifteen key accused have already been arrested in this case, including those who got chemicals and sold liquor to people.
