Before the MLAs of the ruling party of Jharkhand reached the May-fair resort, expensive liquor and beer were being transported there by the vehicle of the Chhattisgarh government. As soon as the media persons stationed outside the resort started taking pictures, the pictures went viral on social media. After pictures surfaced in the local media of Raipur, former Chief Minister Babulal Marandi tweeted that – ‘Liquor was transported for Jharkhandi guests in a government vehicle. By the way, to remind you, in Jharkhand too, the entire network of transactions of alcohol, drinking and drinking and money generated from it is from Chhattisgarh itself.’
सरकारी गाड़ी में झारखंडी मेहमानों के लिये शराब की ढ़ुलाई।

After the matter came to the fore, the Chhattisgarh Congress seemed to distance themselves off, from this matter. At the same time, BJP’s former minister of Chhattisgarh government Mahesh Gagda said that 5 lakh people are on agitation due to the government’s arrangement of liquor during the day. There is no money to increase their honorarium and arrangements are being made for liquor and kebabs for the pleasure of MLAs from outside the state. Now is the day, wine is being sent. In the night, the government will make other arrangements for their luxury.
Chhattisgarh Congress said –It has nothing to do with the matter of carrying liquor from the government vehicle of Chhattisgarh Government in Hotel May-Fair Resort. Congress has questioned the veracity of the video itself. Congress spokesperson Sushil Anand Shukla says that there is doubt on the veracity of the video. This video is edited, where was it made, how was it made. It has nothing to do with the government of Chhattisgarh or the Congress.
