- Alcohol consumption distorts people's personality as well as their thoughts
- Shut down liquor selling country wide for seven days before the voting
- Need positive cooperation from state administration and common people
In an event named 'Total Ban on Liquor during the Elections' organized by the Energy Foundation on Thursday, 28th March 2019, at the Café Bhadaas. Urjaa Guru Arihant Rishi demanded a countrywide total ban on alcohol consumption and alcohol selling during the general elections. The dearest disciple of spiritual guru Mahamna Acharya Samrat Kushagranandi Ji Maharaj, Urjaa Guru Arihant Rishi requested the Chief Election Commission of India, for a total liquor prohibition during the Lok Sabha elections in the country, which is going to be held from April 11 to May 19, 2019 in 7 phases, and in the assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Odisha and Sikkim. Arihant Rishi believes that consumption of alcohol also influences a person’s mentality as well as his/her personality.
Addressing the media, Urjaa Guru Arihant Rishi said, “It is revealed through the media that various political parties, in the greed of the votes, induce voters and distribute money and liquor among them for party’s petty interests. Such acts create an atmosphere of chaos in society, and also weaken the democratic system of the country. Therefore, in order to keep the country's democratic system sustainable and to implement the electoral process effectively, it is very important to ban the sale of liquor completely in the country seven days before the voting. For this, we wish to have the positive cooperation and support from the state administration and the citizens as well."
Urjaa Guru Arihant Rishi has been given recently a place in the Central Saint Board of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). This is the first time that a Jain saint got a place in the VHP. Commenting on the joining VHP, Urjaa Guru said that the VHP is doing a good job for the cause of social welfare, so by the association with VHP, I want to do the same.

In his name, the Urjaa Guru has two records registered in the Guinness Book of World Records, as well as once his name has been appeared in the Golden Book of Records.
