Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Friday defended the Maharashtra government's decision to allow the sale of wine in supermarkets and walk-in stores saying that wine cannot be equated with liquor.

“Wine is not liquor. If wine sales increase (in the state), farmers will benefit from it. We have done this to double farmers' income. The BJP only opposes moves, but does nothing for farmers,” Raut hit out at Fadnavis' remarks.
