Congress took a dig at the ruling party over a purported remark by BJP MP from Bhopal Pragya Thakur. Pragya commented that alcohol is a ‘medicine’ if taken in small quantities. A video went viral in which Pragya is seen explaining that alcohol, whether cheap or expensive, also works as medicine. She added that in Ayurveda, alcohol is medicine when taken in limited quantities. But when consumed in an unlimited manner, it is poison, Pragya went on to say further. Pragya said this when asked for her reaction to the new excise policy. In the new excise policy, the government has cut duty on foreign liquor by 10% to 13%. Reacting to Pragya’s statement, PCC spokesman Narendra Saluja tweeted, that the MP is not opposing alcohol, only its quantity. Pragya was the chief guest at a friendly cricket match organised by MP Pujari Sangh at Ankur Ground. She also played cricket.
