Imran Khan to file a PIL

Added by harini on Jun 15, 2011

Many Bollywood stars have already voiced their displeased opinion over the new drinking law. The new drinking law states that a person should be 25 or above to consume alcohol. This has caused uproar all over the country. And the latest to join in is Imran Khan.

Imran Khan, who has become a youth icon of sorts, is taking it a bit further and has decided to file a PIL… Public Interest Litigation regarding the same. It is confirmed that the legal process is underway and that his legal counselors are working on it.

Imran said that with filling PIL he isn’t advocating the consumption of alcohol but thinks that youth should have the right to choose. He said when a person could vote at 18, get married and have kids by 21, to ban people from drinking till 25 sounds ridiculous.

Imran Khan isn’t the 1st one to advocate this idea. Big B had tweeted before saying - On drinking age limit increased 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 ?!!!! (sic) ."
