  1. I dont think total liquor ban is good for AP with current deficit, because of the natural links of alcohol to travel and tourism industry. AP economy and GDP relies heavily on tourism industry. It leads to a lot of inflow of money and creates large number of jobs and is a great boost to the services industry.
    Totally it will increase more budget deficit to AP but micro segmentation liquor ban at village level is recommended.

  2. Yes for a better society and for better future of next generation it is good step and it is possible to implement at 50% if villages..So inorder it to be implemented successfully we need to gather total number of people in a village,no of male population,female population ,number of students in a village and how many people below poverty lane and based on these logistics we can brainstorm and comeup with a plan.We should also plan to limit selling liquir to the peopke who poses valid drivers license with an age of more than 18 years etc.

  3. Liquor Ban is Recommended. But I like the Pawan Kalyan Approach. Mainly his thought process about a policy. He didn’t said it blindly. He involved the Society in liquor ban policy.

    If your village need a liquor ban you need to act and make liquor ban happend.

    This way liquor ban will be possible with the act of society.

    And about deficit it’s okay to take financial hit to take care of health of people.
    But to cover the deficit need to look at the alternate options to cover the deficit like more tourism and more exports

  4. It’s a good idea by PK, should start with active villages where women are looking for liquor ban. It obviously bring back the responsibility of head of house hold in many poor families. Obviously men will be away to regular alcoholism if it’s not availability easily . Kudos to PK but it’s not that easy , all the best👍

  5. Nice initiative by Mr. Pawan Kalyan , Yes it’s possbile only from society if certain percentage of people in that particular place comes up with the idea of liquor ban in that respective place, then yes I would say it’s possbile as per policies referred from Janasena after gettingAt elected in 2019…

    At the same time since liquor tax is highest paid economy in India and respective states, preventive measures to be taken care in order to compensate that same..

    Hail Democracy , Hail India.

  6. What i liked fro pk is he didn’t give a blind statement like other parties. Village or mandal level consent is the best idea.. sure will be successful

  7. Complete liquor ban in the state can increase the deficit and will be more burden to the Government. But banning liquor shops at an area where woman escalation is more should be an appreciable move by JSP and Pawan Kalyan. This shouldn’t be a burden to the government and is a possible solution.

    “Bringing Governance to the hands of people” Wishing JSP all the success in 2019

  8. Alcohol is only the major income to Andhra Pradesh? Without alcohol AP can’t develop? If so then we don’t want the govt who believe in this. Yes we want the govt who can completely abolish the alcohol. My state want to be free from Alcohol.
