Senior BJP leader Uma Bharti, who has been demanding total prohibition in the party-ruled Madhya Pradesh, walked into a liquor shop in Azad Nagar area of Bhopal on Sunday evening and hurled a stone at alcohol bottles kept on a shelf there. A video of the incident, which Bharti shared on her Twitter handle, went viral on social media.

The former Union minister said that through her act, she has warned the local administration to get the liquor shop shut within a week. In the video, the former Madhya Pradesh chief minister, surrounded by her supporters and local residents, is seen entering the liquor shop, lifting a stone and hurling it at some bottles kept on the shelf.

After that, her followers raise slogans in her support and also chant ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’. The BJP government in Madhya Pradesh has recently unveiled a new excise policy, under which it has permitted setting up of home bars and slashed retail prices of liquor by 20 per cent.
