Ban tobacco in India

Why doesn’t the Indian government ban tobacco totally? Is it really that hard?

It is a known fact that tobacco leads to a hell lot of health irregularities like heart attack and cancer. No way it is going to help anyone, except maybe those who are involved in tobacco farming who will be reaping huge profits.

Banning tobacco might affect the income of tobacco farmers, distributors and petty shop owners. But the government should take this risk and ban tobacco totally. It would even help us keep the city clean of tobacco product covers which are thrown around by people. It is really not hard to implement the ban. It just requires strong will and dedication by the people involved in law making. And yes, it will affect the votes for the ruling party in the forthcoming elections. Probably this is what prevents the government from making this a reality! Or am I wrong?
