Rajasthan congress MLA was wrong over his claim of drinking alcohol can kill coronavirus, W.H.O. reaffirms

Know what Bharat Singh, the MLA from Kota’s Sangod seat claimed

A Jaipur MLA on 30th April in a letter to Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot requested him to reopen the liquor shops.

He claimed that alcohol can kill corona virus in a similar manner an alcohol based sanitizer can.

In the letter, Bharat Singh also revealed that the illicit trade is being flourishing all due the restrictions over liquor shops to open amid corona outbreak.

He wrote, despite unavailability, the demand for alcohol is all prevalent and nowadays is being fulfilled by the illegal actors and middlemen.

Pointed also that the excise duty collection for the year is quite low and it is now hard to achieve what is targeted for the financial year 2020-21.

He tried to divert attention of CM Gehlot over the recent hike in the excise duty which words of Bharat Singh is a cause of low collection of the excise duty.
