The BJP leader ties stray cows in front of a liquor store in MP's Orchha town, raises slogan against alcohol consumption.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Uma Bharti on Thursday called upon people to do away with alcohol and start drinking cow milk instead. During her visit to Madhya Pradesh's Orchha, Bharti found few stray cows around a local liquor store, after which she tied and fed them. She was heard raising slogan, "sharab nahi, doodh piyo' (drink milk, not alcohol) in front of that liquor store. Video clips of her sloganeering were also shared on social media platforms.

In a series of tweets, the BJP leader shared the incident and briefed about the campaign against liquor consumption in the state that is being spearheaded by her. She advised the government to not turn peoples' habit of drinking to its own advantage.

Bharti has been making headlines since last year for protesting against alcohol consumption. In June 2022, she threw cow dung at the same liquor store and in March 2022, she threw stone at another liquor store in Bhopal. She had been demanding a complete ban on alcohol for last couple of months and seeking regularisation of alcohol sale in the state.
