Indore (Madhya Pradesh), June 28 (ANI): Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Babulal Gaur on Sunday said the crime rate is not increasing in the state due to alcohol consumption.
“The crime rate doesn’t go up by consuming alcohol. It increases when a person begins to lose control over himself after drinking,” Gaur told the media here.
“One must drink in limits and not indulge in overdose. Drinking has become a status symbol these days,” he added.
The Madhya Pradesh Home Minister’s comment came after the media drew his attention to the fact that the timing for sale of alcohol in the city has been increased from 10 p.m. to 11.30 p.m. (ANI)
