Justice Manmeet Pritam Singh Arora. 2 1

Former Karnataka Chief Minister H. D. Kumaraswamy has criticized the Congress government in the state for distributing liquor to every household, accusing them of transforming the peaceful state of Karnataka into one where alcohol consumption prevails. He also questioned the government’s decision to open liquor shops in villages with a population of 3,000 and permit the sale of alcohol in supermarkets, all in an effort to increase excise revenue.

D. Kumaraswamy expressed his concerns on social media platform X about the government’s actions, which were in stark contrast to their promises. He criticized the government for going back on their commitments to empower women, likening their actions to extinguishing the flame of women’s empowerment. 

Kumaraswamy also highlighted the government’s shift from providing essential food support, referred to as ‘Annabhagya,’ to promoting liquor, which he termed ‘liquor bhagya.’ He emphasized that such changes could impact Karnataka’s reputation as a hub for science, technology, and innovation, potentially altering the state’s identity. Kumaraswamy accused the Congress government of transforming Karnataka from a ‘garden of peace for all communities,’ as claimed before elections, into what he dubbed a ‘Karnataka Drunkards’ Garden’ after taking office.

The Congress government is being criticized for its approach to schemes. Initially, they promised ‘Griha Jyothi’ for every home, but now they are shifting towards ‘Liquor Bhagya’ for households, which is seen as a move to boost excise revenue through alcohol sales. This shift has raised concerns and prompted criticism, with some dubbing it the government’s sixth guarantee, in a humorous tone.

Setting up liquor shops in every panchayat is concerning, especially when combined with deceptive tactics to attract people. Allowing the sale of liquor in supermarkets alongside essential items like rice, pulses, fruits, vegetables, milk, and curd is seen as problematic. Some are questioning whether this aligns with the principles of socialism. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has been urged to reconsider this approach.

Former CM HD Kumaraswamy criticized the government’s decision to open bars in villages and panchayats with a population of 3,000, which he believes will disrupt communities and homes. He pointed out that women, who had been deceived by false promises, are now facing difficulties in Karnataka, putting their well-being at risk. He expressed disappointment in the government, which initially pledged to empower women (‘give strength’ to the ‘nariyas’) but is now, in his view, causing harm to their lives. He also noted the contrast between the government’s earlier portrayal of women as ‘Grihalakshmi’ (goddess of the household) and the current situation, describing it as an eclipse of their lives.
