Sidhu's reply to Rahul Gandhi on Congress's 'Quit Liquor' rule - everyone drinks in Punjab

Congress party is going to start membership drive from November 1. This week, the new rules made for the membership of the party were very much discussed, according to which a person has to declare that he stays away from alcohol or any kind of intoxicant to become a member. However, this rule is not being followed even by the current Congress office bearers. On Tuesday, during a meeting with Congress office-bearers, Rahul Gandhi questioned how many people sitting in this room drink alcohol. To this the Punjab Congress President replied that most of the people in his state drink alcohol.
On Rahul Gandhi's question, two other general secretaries also admitted that they drink alcohol. It was only after this that a discussion broke out in the meeting that how logical is the rule to give up alcohol to become a member of the party. According to the party constitution, to become a member of the Congress party, a person has to give up alcohol or other intoxicants and he will also have to be accustomed to wearing Khadi.

According to sources, Navjot Singh Sidhu said that most of the people in his state drink alcohol and in such a situation how will the rules made for Congress membership be followed? The rest of the leaders also started giving their opinion on this issue and then the organization general secretary had to stop this discussion.

After the liquor, Rahul Gandhi also discussed the rule made for Khadi and asked how practical it is. On this, Congress members said that Khadi is a symbol of freedom struggle but in the present times it has become very expensive. Some leaders also suggested changing the rules of membership in the Congress Working Committee meeting. Let us inform that on Tuesday, Sonia had called a meeting with the party's state president, in-charge and secretaries to discuss the upcoming assembly elections.
