New Delhi [India], Dec. 16 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the plea filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ashwini Upadhyay seeking a proper policy on consumption of liquor in the country. The bench headed by Chief Justice of India Tirath Singh Thakur asked Upadhyay to go to the government and seek relief as the BJP is ruling at the Centre. "You came up with petitions after petition, who was financing you? Is the government financing you? Why did not you go to the government with your prayer for relief?" the bench admonished. Upadhyay had earlier knocked the doors of the apex court seeking a liquor policy, on the amount of liquor that can be consumed by a person. (ANI)
