Lockdown 3.0 brings happiness to many people, as it brings ease to guidelines and opening alcohol shops. In all zones, where liquor stores open were seen with long queues. In some places, separate queues of women were also made.

The ministry of home affairs under the Government of India announced opening liquor shops across the nation. They have set time to operate between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. But, excitement makes the people stand in a long queue before 7 a.m.
This is an insane decision taken by the Central and all State Government.
Is this why we stayed in a lockdown for 41 days ?

However, people were not following social distancing in many places. The long queue includes thousands of people with 5-6 Kilometers length ruin all the norms of lockdown. Due to people’s rush, police interfere and shut the doors of shops in some places.

Some state governments also added few rules to avoid transmission of coronavirus like no masks, no liquor. But, people seem to jump over each other for liquor and breaking all norms.

People’s gathering at wine shops reopened the brisk business at a very high rate. The crowd seems to stand for hours to get their turn on a sunny day. But, the love of alcohol was not affected by the heat of the Sun. Women who always found to worry about their skin TEN also found to stand for hours.

Some states are also planning to impose an additional tax on alcohol for providing services like home delivery. Although many states and the central government will get a good amount from liquor, it leads to many issues.
