Coronavirus Lockdown: Veteran Actor Rishi Kapoor Urges Govt to Open Liquor Stores
GUWAHATI: Expressing his views on the current lockdown, veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor has asked the government to open all licensed liquor stores for some time in the evening.
The actor took to his twitter handle stating that the state governments desperately need the revenue from the excise department and that frustration should not add up with depression. "As it is pee to rahe hain legalize kar do no hypocrisy. My thoughts," he wrote.
"Think. Government should for sometime in the evening open all licensed liquor stores. Don’t get me wrong. Man will be at home only what with all this depression, uncertainty around. Cops, doctors, civilians etc... need some release. Black mein to sell ho hi raha hai," he tweeted.
Meanwhile, the sale of liquor in Punjab and Kerala continues as both the states have classified all types of beverages including alcoholic ones as “essential” items, exempting them from the lockdown net.
