The Chief Minister, he added, had also ordered strict action against the local excise officials and a crackdown on the people behind the manufacture and sale of illicit liquor.

The Director General of Police (DGP) has also been asked to coordinate between the local police and the excise department to identify the hooch makers and act against them.

Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav alleged that the BJP was encouraging people to drink as it would bring in money in the name of cow cess and people, in absence of adequate knowledge, were consuming such liquor.

He also accused the state’s BJP government of protecting and patronising the liquor mafia.
