The Excise Department is the cash cow for the governments and that's the reason why the governments won't go for the ban on liquor. Only a few leaders like the ex-Chief Minister of combined Andhra Pradesh NTR went ahead with the ban. The revenue generated by liquor makes the government not ban the wing.

Before the 2019 polls, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's YSRCP made big claims that they would ban liquor if come to power. After coming to power, YSRCP did not implement the ban. Forget about banning, the government brought more and more brands and even increased the prices. Needless to say, this made the opposition parties lash out at the government.

With the attack on the government turning intense, Andhra Pradesh Industries Minister Gudivada Amarnath tried to defend the government on this. His comments gave a new weapon to the opposition parties. He said that YSRCP did not promise an alcohol ban in the manifesto and the opposition parties are making a scene out of nothing.

The Telugu Desam Party and Janasena are not leaving any stone unturned to target the ruling party. Compared to the grand old Telugu Desam Party, Janasena is aiming a sharp attack against the mighty YSRCP.

As the cadre and supporters of Janasena are youth, they are widely sharing jokes, cartoons, memes, and other work taking a dig at the YSRCP and Minister Gudivada Amarnath for changing the words on the liquor ban promise made during the election campaign.
