Andhra Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Somu Veerraju on Tuesday, December 28, promised to massively reduce the price of liquor to Rs 50 if they have "more revenue left". The state is all set to enter assembly elections in 2024 and the BJP is trying to beat the YSRCP government in Jagan Mohan Reddy.
BJP's Andhra unit president vowed to reduce the price of liquor in the state only if the safron brigade secures one crore votes in the upcoming elections in 2024.
"Cast one crore votes to Bharatiya Janata Party and we will provide liquor for just Rs 70. If we have more revenue left, then, will provide liquor for just Rs 50," Veerraju was quoted as saying at a rally in Vijayawada by news agency ANI.
