Rahul Gandhi is not wrong when he pointed out that four years ago when he had raised the issue of drugs in Punjab, he had been ridiculed by the Akali leaders. Over the years it has got worse and it is now well established that the state is reeling under the problem of drugs. Villages have been wiped out and families have been ruined. Whether the Badal family is involved in the drug trade or not is debatable but there is no doubt that the state government has done little to stem this menace. With names of Akali leaders and ministers featuring amongst those involved in the racket, the Shiromani Akali Das is likely to suffer the consequences since the problem of drugs is one of the major issues in Punjab. Consequently Anurag Kashyap’s film ‘Udta Punjab’ generated enough controversy since the entire state is badly affected.
