Spread of Covid-19 has affected the daily
life of millions around the world and the country. Central government
along with the cooperation of state Governments had declared lockdown
from March 23rd to May 30th 2020. It was successful in containing the
spread of virus. Some relaxations were given in the second phase where
few shops were allowed to sell things basic for daily living. At the
same time liquor shops were also allowed to sell the liquor which is a
sad thing to hear. The daily wage earners who have collected some money
are been spending money to buy liquor resulting in fights in the
families. There is so much of suffering, loss of lives; loss of
belongings, families on streets is seen thereafter; The Government being
ware of the situation but failed to respond to this chaotic situation.
The Vimukti Women came together and appealed to the Panchayat local body
unit leaders not to permit the illegal sale of liquor and to take
stringent action on concerned people without delay.
