The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs on Wednesday cornered the Punjab government over the issue of liquor mafia active in the state, inside and outside the House.When AAP MLA Aman Arora raised the issue during the Zero Hour asking reasons for rejecting the private member bill in this regard, by speaker Rana KP Singh, all party MLAs, led by LoP Harpal Singh staged a walk-out from the House in protest amid sloganeering. Later addressing the media in the Press gallery, Aman Arora accused Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh of patronizing a liquor mafia worth Rs 10,000 crore in the state. Others who were present on the occasion were, besides Harpal Singh Cheema, Prof. Baljinder Kaur, Sarabjit Kaur Manuke, Principal Budh Ram, Meet Hyer, Kulwant Singh Panduri (All MLAs), party spokesman Navdeep Sangha, Neel Garg, Govinder Mittal and State Media Head Manjit Singh Sidhu. Releasing a 300-page document accessed through RTI to the media, Arora said that from April 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018, 2116 liquor trafficking cases from 21 out of the total 26 excise districts were registered, adding that out the total cases registered against trafficking in the state were barely 5-7 per cent, adding that that liquor worth more than Rs 10,000 crore per year was sold out under the patronage of the government usurping the peoples’ money in connivance with liquor mafia lords.The AAP leader, citing examples of certain liquor outlets, like the Rana Sugar, Tarn Taran, NB Distillery, Rajpura, Om Sons, Bathinda, et al, said were involved in smuggling liquor in other states without using the hologram. He said that 1.56 lakh cartons of alcohol had been consumed in 9 months, and more than 500 FIRs were registered in Bathinda district alone.The AAP said that if the government set up a liquor corporation in the state on the lines what states of Tamil Nadu and Delhi had done, the revenue from sale of alcohol would have crossed over to Rs 11000 crores from the existing 5500 crore revenue. Aman Arora said that if the Captain government failed to tame the liquor mafia, the Aam Aadmi Party, if voted to power in 2022, would set up Punjab Liquor Corporation to crack a whip on the liquor mafia calling the shots in the state.
