Delhi: After AAP’s strong showing in the Delhi elections, a large cross section of people was found inebriated in several parts of the city. It was reported that these people were celebrating and were high on liquor distributed by the two chief national parties before elections.
Though the distribution of liquor was prohibited and strongly regulated by the city police, several bottles of alcohol did manage to find their way to the hands of potential voters.
“It was very funny,” Pappu Prasad, a resident of North East Delhi said. “Someone from Congress came and distributed free liquor in our colony asking us to vote for Congress. Then someone from BJP came and gave us liquor too, asking us to vote for BJP as he had given us free liquor. Our colony eventually decided to vote for the Aam Admi Party and party with the liquor later on.”
“How stupid did they think we were?” he added. “Just because you give someone alcohol a day before elections, you think he will vote for you? Are we fifteen year olds?”
