This is what the "Farmers Protest" is all about. The opposition & Khalistanis are putting in a huge amount of money and distributing alcohol to lure poor farmers and strengthen the protest. 

I don't know why the Govt is even tolerating this protest!

News Verification: The videos shared on social media are not from the Maha Panchayat but from a religious fair of Sufi Baba Rodu Shah's shrine.  Liquor drinking at shrines and religious places is never practised in India, however, at the shrine of a Sufi saint Baba Rodu Shah in village Kaunke Kalan near Jagraon, you can enjoy alcohol as prasad.
