"Intoxicated By Energy": Anna Hazare To Arvind Kejriwal Over Liquor Coverage

“Like liquor, energy too intoxicates. You might be intoxicated by energy, it appears.” That is one in every of many scathing strains in social activist Anna Hazare’s letter to his former mentee, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, over his authorities liquor licence coverage, which was withdrawn in July after a corruption case.

“That is the primary time I’m writing to you because you turned chief minister, as a result of I’m pained at current information experiences about your authorities’s liquor coverage,” the letter, in Hindi, says on the outset.

“You had written idealistic issues on liquor insurance policies in your e book ‘Swaraj’, for which you bought me to write down the introduction,” he says, quoting from it that no liquor outlets be opened with out space residents’ approval. “You’ve got forgotten these beliefs after changing into chief minister.”

Mr Hazare says he sees the Aam Aadmi Get together “shaped by you, Manish Sisodia and others” as “no completely different from every other social gathering now”. 

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who handles Delhi authorities’s excise portfolio amongst many others, is one in every of 15 accused named within the FIR.
