The party has already extended support to the August 4 bandh call in Tamil Nadu by some political parties on the issue of prohibition.
“Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan, hailing from Tamil Nadu and other senior BJP leaders from the state should prevail upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi to impose a total ban on liquor in India,” CPI leader D Pandian said.
By an ordinance the Centre can implement prohibition and the NDA government should take steps towards this, he said.
