Srinagar, March 13 (KMS): The Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir chapter of Indian National Congress has said that the proxy government of
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has set the process of opening of 51 more liquor vends in one go, which is the worst gift to the youth of the territory.
Congress spokesman, Ravinder Sharma in a statement in Srinagar, lambasting the ruling BJP for its dual standards, reminded the people and the BJP that in opposition it used to raise much hue and cry over the issues terming it as a conspiracy against the Jammu youth and push them to drink addiction.
The party is now answerable to the whole sale sanction and opening of 51 liquor shops, 45 of which in Jammu region. Is it not a conspiracy against youth of Jammu region now, he questioned.
The BJP has opened all doors of sale of local resources and trade to outsiders at the cost of local traders. The mining and liquor trades are class example of this, which used to be local traders and small contractors earlier, he added.
The Govt must stop the illegalities of these trades and fleecing of the poor and common man besides the ill-effects of frequent availability of liquor in every nook and corner including in most vulnerable areas and sections, he maintained.
