Shankersinh Vaghela Claims Liquor Dens Running Near Vijay Rupani’s Bungalow

Former chief minister Shankersinh Vaghela on Tuesday asked the BJP government in Gujarat to either enforce Prohibition sincerely or reconsider the policy, claiming that liquor dens were running openly.
Illegal liquor outlets are operating even near the chief minister’s house, Shankersinh Vaghela alleged.

“There is not even a kilometre-long stretch left in Gujarat where one can not find a “potli” (a liquor bottle),” he said, endorsing Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot’s claim that booze was freely available in the Prohibition state.

“It is shameful for the government to claim that there is Prohibition in Gujarat when liquor dens are operating even in the backyard of governor’s and chief minister’s bungalows in Gandhinagar where I live,” Shankersinh Vaghela said.
