“State governments desperately need the money from the excise. Frustration should not add up with depression. As it is everyone is drinking so legalise it no hypocrisy. My thoughts,” actor said in another post.

Another user said, “Think beyond it Rishi ji. People don’t have and are not getting even basic food to survive. Watch the TV to know the ground reality and to come out of your cocoon. What an immature suggestion. Absurd.”

“Rich people think in a different trajectory altogether,” a Twitter user said.
