" ...Injection fayda nahi karega, ye alcohol fayda karegi...Mujhe dawaion se asar nahi hoga, peg se asar hoga...(The vaccine will not give me any benefit, but alcohol will...medicines won't affect me, only liquor can...), the old lady told ANI.

In the 52-second video, the woman said, "I have come to purchase one bottle and two pint. I am here because the injection (vaccine) will not protect me and only alcohol can help me. The people who intake alcohol will only remain fine and healthy.  For people like us, medicine will remain ineffective and only alcohol is beneficial to our health. I have been drinking for 35 years now and have never taken any medicine...".
