Tharoor fears that liquor ban might impact SDI in Kerala

Dilli: Congress MP and former MoS for HRD & External Affairs, Sashi Tharoor said that while the alcohol ban in Kerala is a populist decision taken by the UDF Government, the loss of excise and tourism revenues is a matter of serious concern. Consequently, Kerala will be under severe strain to maintain its excellent record of social services and social development indicators. He said that it is unfair to portray those leaders opposing the move as representatives of the bar lobby. Tharoor also believes that the ban won’t bring down consumption levels in the state. The UDF government took such a decision to shore up its image dented in the issue, said Tharoor.
