    Liquor is necessity for some people , just like tea or cigarates . Western countries kept them open with reduced hours. Why not in India ?

    Krishna, There are theatres all around the world in plenty. Do you go there every day?
    There are medical shops everywhere. Do you visit them daily?
    There are pubs at all places. Do you go there every day?
    Similarly, There are liquor shops at almost every corner in a city. It doesn't mean one has to go there daily. One buys liquor and goes home! Matter ends.
    Let them run their business like anybody else. They don't force you or anyone passing by.
    People who want their daily dose, Let them enjoy it.
    CHEERS.
    Secondly, The hand sanitizers you use are made of alcohol. Please stop using them!!!

    I strongly advise that the fresh IAS cadre should serve in lower posts at least for 10 years and then only should be appointed as District Collectors.
    One says healthy people need not wear masks and another bans liquor sale. Nonsense!!!

    No one is going to die even if Liquor is banned until 31st December 2020. More peace, healthier life, more savings if there is no liquor.

    No savings. Lots of people become unemployed those who are working in liquor business. Govt revenue loses. Not a good sign.
    More harm in closing.

    @Aneesha,
    Those who loose jobs in liquor shops can easily take up jobs in the agriculture and farming sector and lead a healthy life as well as help in producing healthy produce. Government should look for alternative sources of income and cut down wasteful expenditure on Z category security for Tom, Dick and Harry and corruption free administration.
