Chennai, Sep 10:  BJP today reiterated its demand of banning the sale and consumption of liquor in Tamil Nadu, while advocating that investment inflow through the ongoing Global Investors Meet would bring revenue and aid development in the state. “Tamil Nadu government should say that they do not need revenue of Rs 26,000 crore through sale of liquor which harms the health of people and hits hard poor families,” Tamil Nadu unit BJP chief Tamizhisai Soundararajan told reporters. “There is no need to run TASMAC (Tamil Nadu State Marketing Corporation-state owned liquor wholesale and retail chain) for the sake of economy (revenue). Constructive economy is enough for Tamil Nadu,” she said after participating in a stir against liquor sale and consumption here. “Government should say that we have got more(investments) from the GIM, and if the investment inflow details are right, they should ban liquor and bring prohibition,” she said, adding, such investment would be sufficient for the economy, its growth and revenue needs.
