As the Andhra Pradesh government continues its phased transition towards a complete ban on alcohol in the state, we take a look at Prohibition in states across India. How have such bans panned out in the past? Why do politicians promise alcohol bans in their campaigns despite the economic drawbacks? On this episode, we are joined by Deeptiman Tiwary to discuss why Prohibition is often an election issue, Andhra Pradesh correspondent Sreenivas Janyala who explains how CM Jaganmohan Reddy is phasing in a complete ban in the state, and Bihar correspondent Santosh Singh who discusses how the Bihar ban can be seen as partial success and partial failure.
