A huge controversy broke out after BJP MP and Head of Parliamentary Committee on Tobacco, Dilip Gandhi, stated that there was no Indian study to confirm that tobacco causes cancer. Shyam Charan Gupta, BJP MP and Beedi baron, said that if tobacco causes cancer, how come those who don't smoke have cancer and also retorted that if sugar causes diabetes, will you ban that as well? SP Muddahanumegowda, Congress MP from Tumkur, said that the decision to put the final call on warning size in abeyance was unanimous. Whether it's the Congress or BJP, does the all-powerful tobacco lobby prevail? On We The People, we debate, is it some MPs now who are injurious to health?
