PMK Heading towards ban of Alcohol also …
Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss was successful in bringing in a complete ban of tobacco from today. His father (Dr. Ramadoss) who heads the Pattali Makkal Katchi in Tamil Nadu has been also actively combating against liquor shops and urging the government to bring a total closure of all liquor shops and wine outlets in the state.
You can check out a complete report from ‘The Hindu’ here. We have the following significant points to ponder upon over this topic and support PMK in their initiative to urge the government to bring a complete ban on liquor.
- Drunken driving cases in several parts of the state is on an alarming rise. Cops are just going blind-folded.
- The government is just acting deaf, dumb and blind towards the cry of people on their requests that illicit arrack distilleries be stamped out from the Indian soil.
- Many political agents have significant contracts and capital investments in either TASMAC and/or one or more those illicit arrack distilleries and this seems to be ulterior and sole motive of the government turning a blind eye to the cause of banning the liquor flow in the state.
At least in Gandhi Jayanthi day, let us hope we pray to our ‘Father of Nation’ to help us tide over this menace.
