When the Mahavikash Aghadi government took this decision, a huge uproar started in the state. The Bharatiya Janata Party strongly opposed it. Do you want to make Maharashtra the state of liquor? The then opposition leader Devendra Fadnavis questioned the government. Meanwhile, Anna Hazare also opposed this decision. Hazare warned that the decision should be withdrawn immediately, otherwise he would go on an indefinite hunger strike. So the government has to pay attention.
Senior officials of the State Excise Department, Ministers met Hazare. The final decision was taken after inviting the people’s objections and suggestions regarding this decision. Objections have been raised accordingly. Many objections and suggestions have been received. In between there is a shift in power. This topic was left behind.

This time the state Excise Minister Shambhuraj Desai again brought the issue forward. He indicated to start the next process considering the people’s objections and suggestions in this decision. Agriculture Minister Abdul Sattar said that the interests of farmers will be protected if alcohol is allowed to be sold in supermarkets. So the issue came up again, with activists opposing it in the case of liquor prohibition. There was attention to what Hazare would say about this.

Speaking to the media in Raleghansiddhi this morning, Hazare said, ‘Mall culture is not Indian. It is a foreign culture. It is not right to sell medicine in such a mall. Earlier we had warned of agitation while taking this decision. At this time he stopped. I am sure that the government that has come to the state now will not think of selling liquor in malls. If such a decision is made, we must go our separate ways forever. But no such decision has been made yet. See you later. However, this is not our culture,’ said Hazare.
