Liquor King Vijay Malya has gifted the Indian MP’s with a bottle of alcohol as Diwali gift. But Malya’s trick reversed when a BJP Rajya Sabha MP Prabhat Jha returned the bottle along with a letter to Malya which says that though this gift may have been sent to him with affection, it had no place in his life.
The letter also pulls up Malya for not keeping in mind the norms of "Parliament, Parliamentarians, and the Parliamentary system. I was surprised as by sending such gifts to Indian Parliamentarians, even without having any acquaintance with them; we are perhaps making fun of the MPs or treating them as worthy of a bottle. Liquor is even today a problem and not a solution for the country. Delhi government has imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on those drinking in public, but what punishment should be given to you for publicly distributing alcohol? " Jha questioned Malya.
