New Delhi: Long queues, crowds are overly flowing at Delhi liquor shops.
The Delhi Government has allowed liquor shops to open with a 70 percent tax hike imposed. After, people are standing in long queues to buy liquor.
Many people supported the decision to hike the tax on liquor saying only those who can afford it are buying liquor.
After the lockdown, it’s been more than a month, shops are closed.
And now Delhi liquor shops are filled with human heads.
A woman who was standing in a long queue in Mayur Vihar liquor shop requested anonymity said that whoever wants to buy liquor will definitely come to purchase. Those who can afford it will buy liquor no matter what. Government has increased the rate and that is not going to affect anything.
Another man said to media that I am extremely happy that liquor is available after 40 days. We are aware that government has increased the tax so we will take once every week instead of everyday.
Amit Kumar, the manager of a liquor shop in Mayur Vihar, said that the liquor shop is strictly following the guideline that is issued by the government.
