Indore: Targeting the state government for selling liquor, former PWD minister Sajjan Singh Verma said that instead of taking steps to control COVID-19, the ​government is busy in selling liquor across the state.

In a video released by Verma on Wednesday, he said “Selling liquor is more important for the government than saving people’s lives. They are taking action against people for starting their businesses but selling liquor ‘shamelessly’.

Verma also ​had a 'suggestion' for the BJP, “I ​suggest that Shivraj Singh Chouhan should start selling liquor from one counter and state BJP president VD Sharma from the adjacent counter.​"​

He also targeted the government for increasing number of deaths from COVID-19 in the state and termed it as the government’s failure in containing the infection.
