Oppose Rajya Sabha seat for Vijay Mallya sign now

PLEASE JOIN US IN PROTEST AGAINST THE ELECTION OF LIQUOR BARON VIJAY MALLYA AS RAJYA SABHA MEMBER.

There is growing evidence today that ALCOHOL is fast becoming the most important public health issue in the country, contributing to both communicable diseases and life style diseases in India. A number of incidents such as increasing cases of drunken driving accidents, alcohol-induced domestic violence, and health-related issues are emerging due to excessive consumption of alcohol and the tacit support in its sale from the government. Alcohol is contributing to the wastage of precious human resource in India thus.

Liquor companies such as United Breweries have been responsible for enticing the young and old alike by promoting alcohol consumption as a Sign of Good Times. We condemn liquor companies such as the one run by Mr.Mallya and all such players for their immoral profiteering through the increase in alcohol sales and expanding their market through blatant surrogate and indirect advertising of alcoholic drinks by associating it with glamour, beauty, sports and fun without any social responsibility whatsoever.

We strongly condemn Mr. Vijay Mallya for his infamous gifting of liquor bottles to Members of Parliament on the occasion of the festival of Diwali last year. We wish to tell him in no uncertain terms not to indulge in the game of influencing Parliamentarians for his greed.

We call upon all political parties including the Congress, the CPI(M) and the Janata Dal (Secular) and others not to support, sponsor or nominate the election of Mr. Vijay Mallya to the Rajya Sabha.

It is unfortunate that the liquor lobby is able to enter the Parliament using their money power. We also call upon the Honourable Prime Minister, Members of Parliament and all responsible political parties to kindly go through our appeal for bringing a National Alcohol Control Policy.

In the larger interests of the Nation.


Members of NAALCOP (National Advocacy for Alcohol Control Policy)
