After the anti-drug campaign on October 2, action was taken only for two days. She said she was waiting for a discussion with Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on the issue.

According to Bharti, the lacunae in the old liquor policy have not been done away with, and because of the government’s liquor policy, the mafias are taking stay order from the court.
