Congress chief Priyanka Gandhi Vadra attacked the Yogi Adityanath authorities in Uttar Pradesh over deaths as a result of poisonous liquor and requested why the state dispensation had not acted towards the liquor mafia.
At least seven folks died and a number of other others have been hospitalised after allegedly ingesting poisonous liquor in a village in Prayagraj on Friday, the police mentioned.
“There have been deaths due to toxic liquor in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow, Firozabad, Hapur, Mathura, Prayagraj, as well as other places. Earlier, there had been deaths due to toxic liquor in Agra, Bagpat, and Meerut,” Priyanka Gandhi mentioned in a tweet in Hindi.
“What is the reason that apart from a few pretentious steps, the government was unable to take action against the toxic liquor mafia? Who is responsible?” she questioned.
