"In my village at Ralegaon Siddhi there were 40 liquor distillation plants and we removed them all and for the past 20 years, no one in my village drinks alcohol, or consumes tobacco," Hazare said. "If the people's will is strong and the government gives support, it is possible to implement total prohibition," he added.
