According to information, one Abhishek Gupta has obtained licence to open a liquor counter in Mirgan Sahi from the Excise Department. However, the place where the shop is going to open is just 10 metre away from a community-use tube well and 20 metre from the Anganwadi Centre.
“Children, specially unmarried and adolescent girls, and women very often come to the tube well to take water fir cooking and drinking purposes. It is also very close to the Anganwadi Centre. Thus, we will not allow the liquor shop to operate in our locality,” said agitating women.
The women have requested the concerned authorities to cancel the liquor shop licence soon or else they will intensify the stir.
