- 1995: Mizoram passed law to completely ban liquor.
- But later Government feels that “total” prohibition has harmed the state- because juntaa still drinking Deshi and dying because of hooch. (Zahrili-sharaab).
- 2014: new act, lifts “total” prohibition from the state.
- Now anyone above 21 years can drink- both deshi as well as videshi liquor. But he’ll need permit.
- New act raised fines and jail-terms for all type of drinking related offences.
- Any citizen can arrest drunkards but they have to hand them over to police or Excise and Narcotics officials.
http://cinziamazzamakeup.com/?x=comprare-levitra-originale-pagamento-online New liquor policy to apply total prohibition within 10 years in phased manner
|Anti-Government argument||Pro arguments|
- Anyways, Under this policy, State Government planned to cancel bar licences of all hotels below the category of five-star (from 12-September onwards).
- Obviously, those bar owners did not like it, NOT ONE BIT. so they went to HC and then to SC.
- flaw in the policy- drunkards can still goto five star hotels or the zero star Toddy shops!
- Policy is discriminatory and against constitutional right of equality – if state wants to impose prohibition then ban should be equally imposed on all the liquor selling shops- irrespective of stars.
- Only 10% of the govt. outlet will be closed every year.
- Govt. should educate the mass against harmful effects of liquor before the sudden and outright ban on the small liquor shop.
- Aruna Bahuguna: first lady director of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA), Hyderabad.
- SVPNPA = place where IPS probationers are trained.
- But recently a trainee IPS died after drowning in the swimming pool, under the influence of liquor.
- Therefore, Director has banned all types of liquor in the academy.
