Consumption of ‘taadi’ farm liquor may prevent capture of Covid-19: head of BSP UP unit
The chairman of the Bahujan Samaj Party’s Uttar Pradesh unit, Bheem Rajbhar, has claimed that if people consume large amounts of farm liquor ‘taadi’, they will not contract Covid-19. He also claimed that ‘taadi’ has the power of immunity and a drop is purer than the water of the Ganges river.
Addressing a party program in the Rasra area of the district on Monday, Rajbhar said: “If people consume ‘taadi’ in large quantities, then they will not be infected with Covid-19. In the Rajbhar community, the children are raised by making them drink ‘taadi’, ”he said, without citing medical evidence.
Attacking former Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister and Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party chief Om Prakash Rajbhar, he said: “Some people are trying to realize their vested interests by misleading the people of the Rajbhar community. One must be alert to these people. The people of the community have respect in the BSP ”.
