Anti-liquor body to intensify stir in Ganjam
The opening of liquor shops in the district by the district administration flouting the rules and regulations has ruined the poor people and led to deterioration of the law and order situation, said South Odisha Nishanibaran Committee convenor Sanatan Choudhury at a meeting held here on Monday.
Choudhury demanded implementation of the total prohibition Act in Odisha as done by the Bihar Government in 2016. The committee has also called for agitation for implementing the Act immediately in the State; otherwise in coming days anti-liquor protests would be intensified.
He expressed disappointment over opening of a liquor shop near the City High School at Sub-Registrar Office Square here flouting the law.
To strengthen the protest, journalist and BJP leader Rabi Rath has been selected as an advisor by the committee.
At the meeting committee president Padma Charan Das, Gokalyan Samiti president Pramod Chandra Sahu, BJP Krusaka Morcha president Surya Narayan Das, advocate RadhaCharan Nayak, BJP Mahila Morcha general secretary Babita Patra, Rashmiranjan Sahu, Sukant Kumar Nayak, Rabi Das, Ashok Gupta, Lalit Mohan Padhi and Sashibhusan Rout were present.
