The man asks if he can drink wine and drive. See what Mumbai police say in response


New Delhi: The Mumbai Police Department is known for its creative comments to Twitter users, and it once again amusingly responded to a guy who asked if he could drink wine and drive.

A Twitter user quoted politician Shiv Sena and MP Rajya Sabha Sanjay Raut as saying that wine is not alcohol and if wine sales increase then farmers will benefit.

Raut’s statement came after the opposition BJP criticized the Maha Vikas Aghadi government’s plan to legalize the sale of alcohol in supermarkets, saying efforts were underway to transform Maharashtra into Madhya-Rashtra (state of alcohols). As part of its new wine policy, the state government has allowed all supermarkets and walk-in stores to carry in-state wine.

Taking to Twitter, the user, while tagging Mumbai Police, wrote: “So if I drink wine and drive, will @MumbaiPolice put me behind bars or show me the nearest bar?

In response, Mumbai Police tweeted: “Sir, we recommend you up the ante and get in a chauffeured car, after drinking, as a ‘responsible citizen’.

Otherwise, if the breathalyzer detects the alcohol content of the wine you drank (which frankly it will), you will have to be our guest behind bars,” he adds.

The tweet has received over 4,000 likes and hundreds of replies so far. The Mumbai police response sparked a series of reactions.

On Twitter, the user writes: “But the MP from the ruling party claims that wine is not an alcohol and therefore allows the sale of a win in shopping malls”.

“Which guests are served behind bars, I wonder?” another user asked.

Earlier Wednesday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil had launched 91 Nirbhaya squads in Mumbai.

Nirbhaya Squad is a special unit made up of female officers to combat sexual harassment and other crimes against women. In this regard, the hotline number ‘103’ has been activated.
