Delhi Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra's comment that the age bar for liquor consumption in the national capital should be reduced from 25 to 21 years sparked a controversy on Friday.
Mishra said that after a certain age, the youth should have the freedom to exercise their choice and the government should not interfere in it.
Delhi is not the only state with 25 years as the legal drinking age. Punjab, Haryana, Maharashtra and Meghalaya too have the same age limit.
