Imran Khan stands up against the raised age bar for alcohol consumption

Imran has said he would file a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the court because he feels that it is unconstitutional for the government to bar a person’s freedom of choice despite being an adult.


“I will go to court. I will launch Facebook campaign on Power to You. I met a lot of people and heard a lot of discussion but no one does anything. It is a problem with this country,” he said.


“If the government things that you are an adult at 21, then they should allow you all the rights of an adult,” he added.


“I would request the entire country to support me. I want the people of this state and the nation to be with me. It [government move] is dangerous, personal freedom is being limited. “Ultimately where will it stop?” he asked.


Senior actor Amitabh Bachchan also seems to support Imran in his view as posting on his Twitter account, he said, “Also, on drinking age limit increase to 25 ! Err .. old and mature enough to vote for the country, or join army and fight for the nation … but not old and mature enough to be told when you are allowed to drink ???? Strange ?!!!!”
