Bangalore: Poor deserve cheap but safe liquor, feels Siddu

Bangalore: Poor deserve cheap but safe liquor, feels Siddu

Daijiworld Media Network – Bangalore (SP)

Bangalore, May 15: Chief minister, Siddaramaiah, it is learnt, feels that the poor people of Karnataka are in dire need of cheap liquor, as they are facing a financial crunch after arrack was banned by the coalition government headed by H D Kumaraswamy in 2007. Accordingly, he is learnt to have conveyed to the top officials of excise department his intention to introduce cheap but safe branded liquor for the poor people, and asked them to work out ways and means of achieving this objective.

On Tuesday, the chief minister held a meeting with the departmental heads. Thereafter, he said that the poor people, particularly the labour class, have been facing lot of problems as they are compelled to go for costlier liquor after a ban was placed on arrack in the state. He told the excise officials of his inclination for easing their burden by providing cheap and safe liquor alternative to costlier varieties. Sale of both Indian-made liquor and Indian-made foreign liquor have registered a sharp increase in the state in terms of sales since arrack ban was enforced.

Towards preparation of a new budget, the chief minister held marathon meeting on Tuesday at his chamber, and reviewed performances of a number of departments including finance, energy, revenue, and water resources. Siddaramaiah concentrated on his work, even as his senior party colleagues were in New Delhi in an effort to become members of his ministry. Siddaramaiah is scheduled to leave for New Delhi on Wednesday May 15 for holding discussions with the party top brass.

Siddaramaiah has asked commercial taxes, excise, stamps and registration, as well as motor vehicle taxes departments to revise their revenue targets for next year and generate more revenue. The stamps and registration department was told to upwardly revise the guidance value of land in major cities of the state, and continue to revise the same every year. The finance department was told to curtail unnecessary expenditure and improve tax collection, besides preparing a white paper on its present state. He also wants the officials to draw up strategies for supplying uninterrupted power to rural areas of the state.

Siddu knows the financial administration as he is a seasoned administrator. Banning alcohol does not stop its consuming. Better policies and tight administration can only stop systematic growth of illegal booze. Despite ban at Gujarat, alcohol still flows but generating heavy alternative channels.

'Drink liquor and save water!!' this must be the slogan of our cheap minister!!!

Sorry brothers, I am not favoring drinking alcohol here…

I understand that ‘Arrack’ would be the worst and banning/stopping the same would be right decision. But alternative option available is expensive liqors (Looks lobby of big distillery owners)…

Maharasthra’s model for the same would be called “Desi Bar” or “Desi Darooka Adda” stands ahead than the other states. Heard that different flavored Santra (Kittale), Cashew, Coconut (similar to Goa Fenny) etc. are cheaper and better liquors are sold / served there. It is produced within in Maharashtra for these bars (addas) only.

If newly elected KA Government takes necessary steps to introduce (with proper guidelines) for natural and safe liquors will definitely help poor as well as farmers too…

If you really think you would know that no one has stopped consuming alcohol ever since arrack has been banned. People who drink will drink no matter what, you cannot legislate morality. The poor people who used to consume arrack earlier are now spending three times the money to get the same kick at bars and liquor stores consuming more expensive liquor for the bar owners and liquor to make more money.

The revenue from Arrack used to go to the government, now you have the bar owners selling higher value liquor who are making money. While it may sound as a low moral idea, it sure is a sound idea for the government excise department to supply cheap and good quality liquor for those who want it, so it is a source of revenue for the government and some money saved for the poor people.

Do you know of any poor person who has stopped drinking ever since arrack has been banned ?

If you did not understand what CM Siddu proposed to do, then you refrain from commenting. Mangalore will not be a free flowing liquor capital anytime.
And your suggestion to our CM to prepare road map for development, have u suggested any minister in Canada what he should do and should not do? Canada is also a Democratic country.
Our newly elected CM is Very capable person, well experienced in politics and administration. He wants to undo the bad things which his predecessors did.
Please read in this forum Stephen Lewis, Belthangady\Dubai write up.
It sort of surmarises the bad things that happened by banning arak\what was the purpose behind such ban etc.
Never even in your dream think that BJP had any concern of citizens health by banning arak.
And Road maps for developments will be done. They cannot be drawn up in a week's time. If you are capable of preparing in a week's time, contact immediately our CM. He will surely go through your resume and may give you a call.
If he gives you a call, will you come back to Karnataka...??!!!!

Are you aware Mr CM that all liqour retailers in the state are charging Rs 10-15 more over the labled price? Find out why and prosecute those who violate the pricing law.When questioned why they charge more , they avoid to answer.

Steven Lewis, Belthangadi/Dubai
Wednesday, May 15, 2013

It is is very interesting to read many comments, and some honest ideas like liquor free state etc was much appreciating. One who knows Belthangadi being one of 224 Thaluks in the stae, I wish to emphasise the fact that in all our village area since 7 years (ever since BJP banned Arrack) illicit liquor and foreign liquor madeup of spirits and other chemicals is widely on sale. I am sure, this is is not unique in Belthangadi alone...I therefore need to mention that the Government has utterly failed to control illicit liquor in the sate, and in one angle Siddharamayya is not wrong in protecting the souring revenue due to the illicit liquor business running allover state.

Who knows BJP government indirectly created a business source for its un employed cadres by banning legal sale of Arrack in state ???

I think, Drinking habit cannot be stopped by any law or by stopping supply of Arrack alone. Moreover, when you control something, the desire and temptation will be more. Supply / Demand Law says Demand is inversely proportionate to supply.. while we accept this universal law, our society and all those institutions with the support of Government has to support for bringing up more and more Alcohol Rehabilitation Centres all over state, and this could be a wise idea.

As we all know, a funny passing says, reducing the alphabets from the word H A B I T cannot vanish something that has broughtup over the years !!

Therefore the new CMs idea to tap the lost Government revenue from Arrack sales does not amount anything against people of state.

This is not a good beginning for the CM on the first day in his office though as Francis said in his comments earlier, the CM has a soft corner for the poorest working class people who unfortunately have been addicted to the daily drinking and spend presently a substantial amount of their daily wages to satisfy their urge, and from that respect the CM is right though socially it doesn't seems so.

Yes that and some other serious ones during the last four\five years (Priority to those where CM\Ministers involved)
But that takes time - as legal things are involved.
Things like the one he announced here can be done any time. He may influence the drinkers to control or even give up completely, which he'll do gradually (Step by step).

There are so much of backlog as there were no one to attend to, in the previous Govt. It will take time to cleanse that mess!!
Slowly and steadily, things will fall in place and all of us will appreciate his\his ministers efforts

Absolute stupidity to think a poor labourer will spend only few rupees on liquor and use remaining money on family. When it comes to liquor, even a fool knows there is no stopping. Most of the working class families have already yakshagana and screams whole night, and with cheap liquor it will be total hell for these families. when will our minister understand this ? If he does not understand then it is good time to kick him out before he renders more harm by these cheap tricks to please the public.

What is the logic of Mr. CM. Yesterday he told that poor will get rice at Re. 1/- since they are poor. Today he is telling they eligible for Cheap liquor. That means poor no need to work because he is poor. Buy 10 Kg Rice at Rs. 10/- and 2 bottles of liquor at Rs. 10/- enjoy full month at home without hard work ?????. If you are not working for a month your income will also come down. Then again you will be treated as poor since your income category is below poverty line.... No need to think about your family, Children education..This government makes you dumb and brain dead so you will vote them in next election also.....what an idea sirji....

Because of liquor ban the cost of daily labour increased from Rs.100 to Rs. 400. Before they get liquor for Rs. 11, now they have to spend Rs. 40 for whisky.

Taxes on liqor and Cigrettes should be increased in order to contain the cosumption/smoking. If alchol prices are brought down, the labour class will be having three shifts (drinking) instead of only at the night. What a great proposal.

After banning arrack shops in 2007, most of the addicted village people had difficulty in quitting drinks. However in the last 6 years many drunkards have adjusted themselves to no-drinks. And their family had great sigh of relief in last 6 years. But Siddu's this policy will make the drunkards to go back to their previous life.

They donot want people to be educated, they should be eddicted to all bad habits and no people from Minorities, SC, ST and other backward classess should come up to main stream. If they come level with other people it is difficult for them to create a vote bank. That is why they make people GULAM. Tragedy is our people are not understanding this. People like Modi has been criticised. He tried to bring evey body into mainstream and he showed how to do it. That is why every Congi & co is afraid of him.

What is in a name - you suggest a good name to the CM for that cheap but less harmful liquor he wants to make it available for the lesser earning people.
These people used to get dirty\harmful, if consumed, liquor for the last few years. Drinking of liquor cannot be stopped but supply of better stuff is a possibility which will reduce the harmful effect.
It is with concern for the lower earning people that our concerned CM has suggested this.
There will be so many "GALIS" etc. here for his suggestion

Dear all readers...Karnataka 's major source of revenue used to be from auctioning Arrack & Toddy (Thalukwise) years ago! Whereas, BJP banned arrack & Toddy and issued several licenses for foreign liquor shops, Pubs, and highway side bar & restaurant. In one end they demonstrated that, poor people were made away with arrack, rather it was a foolery to people, as a strong inclined consumer, whether it is cheap or costly, he will buy for any price. Moreover, as on today lots of illicit / illegal liquor getting sold in villages. Police or government hardly can stop this. Even proven record shows how Ex - Excise minister Renukacharya used to demand hafts from Manglore pub owners and got red eye with then CM sadananda for ordering enquiry on the firmer!

Now siddhu looks for source of revenue to implement his ambitious and glamorous soaps offered to people on the very day he took office. Whereas, auctioning liquor could bring huge income to government, which he knew being 7 times finance manager of the state government before.

Also, he knows, lots of congress workers will get jobs in arrack sales shop, lots of drivers will get jobs in the distribution / supply chain, mostly billavas who claim it as "Kula kasubu" in twin district were mainly in this business for decades, and B Janardhana Poojary being from billava community, wants to appease his community, and might be influencing Siddhu?

All this must be the back ground for bringing again arrack in the state. So readers, if one opposes Suddhu for bringing arrack again, then he/she should oppose total ban in the state, which our high spirit society may not like it?...so comments in this particular matter is un necessary...it is better we watch Siddhu what he is achieving in this regard?

Dear all,
I fully agree with all the comments given in this article so far....and here are my views.
I have worked with the marginally poor people in my area and observed that a poor coolie used to earn 100 rupees per day in 1994 he used to spend 12 rupees on arrack and rest on rice eatables etc for his family and enjoyed life.these same people earned rupees 200 per day in 2008 spent 50-100 rupees on alcohol when arrack was banned but did not have enough to spare for the family.
no doubt alcohol in any form should be banned as per most you all but what about those people who are addicted and cannot work or do menial labour without this think of your own surroundings those who are in Kuwait or Saudi.
so lets wait and see what this new development brings with it..
BJP used to mint money by granting permits to provide costlier ones....lets wait and see....

Up liftment of the poor & downtroden cannot ever be achieved in a poor way. It needs proper solid plans & projects with sufficient time limit. Who are the poor? Why are they poor? This should be studied. Distinguishing between real poor & so called poor is very very important task. Accordingly different plans & programmes should be made for different types of poor. It need to be done from grass root level, panchayat level, village level. 1 Rs. rice and so on need to be short term plans and really reach the real poor. Therefore it is a huge task and combined efforts from all levels need to be initiated as soon as possible.

Did the people of this state voted you to power to create more drunkards in villages? At least some families have been staying peacefully in the villages. But now you want to spoil all of them too? Why don't you reduce the price of essential commodities? why don't you reduce the price of Milk which is used by all? why don't you reduce the tax on fuel as like in GOA so that the price of all commodities comes down? Why to concentrate on useless issue which is liquor? Only thinking of Speedy Money by healing the blood of poor from past 65 years & still thinking the same... However at least BJP JD(S) done something good, don't spoil it. If we people support this today, tomorrow they will start lottery to make quick money. At any cost this should not be allowed. Good things done by previous Governments should be retained. Think of something GOOD.

Rightly said Linda. You are spot on on this. Unless we raise our voices against this nuisance, these brainless politicians will keep on doing whatever benefits them. We did not elect this government to indulge in this stupidity. I am congress supporter and had great respect for Siddu. But I did not expect Siddu to stoop to this level. As you rightly said let them to reduce the prices of essential commodities and improve, health care, power situation, the peoples lives. To say the least, this is a total nuisance and misuse of power by the Congress government. If he is really concerned about the poor people, let him bring plans to improve their lives by providing better housing, education to their children and health care and not to resort to this cheap publicity. Poor deserve these things and not the cheap liquor and in this alone lies the welfare of people and state. This initiative will benefit politicians like T John, manufacturer of cheap liquor and also a ministry aspirant. Let us all unite irrespective of cast creed and party affiliation to stop this nuisance and show our power to this politicians. If Siddaramayya had glanced one 1% of comments in this site, he should not dare to implement this nonsense

Banning liquor sale is total foolishness. In Saudi Arabia and Kuwait there strict prohibition.
Still expatriate preparing homemade liquor from Grape Juice/east and some of them doing bootlegging also.

It’s very sad to say those who can't buy / afford homemade stuff, consuming Shaving Lotion mixing with Seven Up or Fizzy drinks.

Late NTR banned liquor in AP.

Result: Within one year many people especially from AP / Karnataka border became CROREPATIS becoz there was bumper sale in near Karnataka border. Secondly AP Govt lost crores in excise revenue and it generated whole sale bootlegging. Politicians/Police/Bootleggers became milliners within overnight.

I still remember when I was working in Bombay 25 yrs back, the liquor in Mangalore is 70% more than Bombay and the quality was much much better. Even I had carried 2 bottles while travelling from Bombay to Mangalore due to price variance.

I hope, quality liquor with less price will make a big difference but do not encourage arrack as it will spoil people's health.

Dear Diajiworld Readers! Firstly, I never say you all to support BJP. I agree Yeddi is a corrupt politician, which we never expected when we supported him. There are good leaders in BJP than him. Compair to Congress, BJP had some development in state. I agree they had a internal issues, which i strongly unappreciate. Siddu is a person who jumped from JD's to Congress. We have congress in our state since from Independance, why congress dont have a capable leader to be a CM, why they depend upon a person who is not stable in a single party. Even i unappreciate the activities happend in Mangalore like church attack, night stay, pub attack etc when BJP govt was ruling our state. I dont know whether i am right or not, one question is running within myself for all this incident that "Do congress had influence in these activities to bring bad remark on BJP and gain full majority in this election" May be a pre planned one. B'cos congress always comment on BJP as "Komuvadi party". I think we never faced "Hindu Muslim or Hindu christian fights" when BJP was ruling karnataka. BJP had made development in Mangalore we have to agree b'cos we are seeing Malls, supermarkets, concrete roads, & even inter locks in sub roads throughout our city. Compairing BJP with congress govt, BJP had done some good things in 5 yrs against 60 yrs of congress party when they were in power. Has a good parents to our children we never expect our children to go for a night stay and get influence to drug. Even we never expect our childrens to get influence to cigrats during their studies. One part its right that "BD" obejected this but should not had touched students. But i heard personals who had involved in this activities are still in prison. BJP govt kept them in prison till date, but i doubt Congress may get them out to get support and divert them towards their side like how they keep doing with minorities till date to gain vote from them.

Boss, You are 100 % right, No doubt at all.. There are many secularists who blame BJP for every wrongdoings be it during BJP rule or during Congress rule, up to the extent of recent terror attack in Blore, For everything they link BJP. So at the mean time there is every possibility that Congress must have done these acts deliberately to get bad name to the city as well for BJP to divert the attention of public from the development. Bcoz it is 100 % certain that Mlore has seen more growth in last 5 years than 60 yrs of congress ruling, also another fact is that there was not a single day curfew imposed in last 5 yrs due to communal clash...

You are right.. Congress has a clear cut hidden policy which is Divide and Rule and they have succeeded in it. For the minorities they create fear and get their votes (like a mother saying to her baby "Bale per par icchinda gonge barpe") and for Majorities they create a False feel of Secularism which many of them fall.

The poverty should not discourage the poor to live.It is the work of the good government to supply their needs at a reasonable price.I fully agree with the C.M.to provide poors needs at a effortable price.Nice sir,great idea,please go ahead and do the needful to the poor.God will surely bless you because poor are the God's children.But look at the state fund position and then only implement these popular schemes.All the best.Thanq.

Dear CM, If you want to use my tax money for the poor, give it for their children education, housing etc. Do not make them lazy by giving Re 1/- per Kg rice, cheap liquor etc. A man works for a day, earns Rs. 200/- (I do not think anyone works for Rs. 20/- per day) and never come back to work at least 10 days.

..Kali (toddy) which is naturally produced, created jobs for thousands who are traditionally engaged since hundred years & toddy did'nt created any major health problems for the drinker..But, it is simply banned just favor the big Alcohol manufacturing companies..Now, CM is saying he will give cheap Liquor, which is now a days produced with dangerous Industrial spirits!!

Dear Commentators, Please note Sidhu said not only cheap but highlighted "SAFE" liguors and why no one is higlighting in their comments.If it is safe then must be a "QUALITY" product not road side or China made.Those who have drinking habits they will drink full quota regardless of price or cost, so that they can save some money in their daily earnings after fullfil their quota which can be used for their family's daily bread.

It is a right decision to supply cheap liquor to the poor. Siddhu knows what he is doing. See the result, it will be positive.
