Caught insulting an IPS officer, BJP MLA now alleges police complicity in allowing illegal liquor shops to function
A day after he kicked up a storm over his misbehavior with a lady IPS officer in Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s Lok Sabha constituency of Gorakhpur, Mohan Das Agrawal, the BJP MLA in question, has now accused the police of violating rules and allowing the running of liquor shops in the residential areas of the city.
To put the case in spotlight, the Sadar MLA has decided to protest against such shops and would sit on a dharna at city’s popular Mahatma Gandhi statue tomorrow.
After dharna announcement on Monday; Agrawal said that he would collect and hand over all the data about the illegal liquor shops in the city, especially those running in the residential areas, to the district magistrate.
Agrawal accused police of allowing a liquor shop to function in the residential part of the village, even though the district administration had ordered the closure of the shop. The heated argument on Sunday left local circle IPS officer Charu Nigam, teary-eyed.
