Remark of Andhra Pradesh Excise Minister Kothapalli Samuel Jawahar that beer is a “health drink” has triggered controversy with the main opposition party, YSR Congress, creating chaos over it.

The Minister, in an interview to a vernacular TV channel, had said the State government was planning to endorse beer as a ‘health drink.’  Not only that, when the anchor asked in which way was beer a health drink, the Minister invited the anchor for a meeting wherein he could list the scientific reasons.

In the meantime, the video of the interview has gone viral on the social media.


YSR Congress MLA RK Roja quickly responded on the remark and asked “what was stopping the Telugu Desam government from selling beer in medical shops and distributing it as a nutritional supplement to newborns, pregnant women and students in general if it is a health drink.”

Roja said she did not expect such a remark from the Minister who was a Dalit and former teacher.
