Vaikundarajan Happy About HC Nod For Closure Of Liquor Bars In Kerala
On Thursday Kerala High Court supported the Kerala government policy of ‘No Liquor’ by upholding the validity. This was a big blow to the bar owners. Vaikundarajan feels this is a good move to lower the liquor consumption.

The HC verdict will close down 700 bars in Kerala. But court allowed 33 bars in 4 stars and heritage hotels function. After government ban, 20 bars in 5 star hotels were allowed to operate by court. The HC verdict was passed by Justice Surendra Mohan, which has set a goal of Total Prohibition By 2023.

CM Oommen Chandy is happy about The HC verdict but feels that it is a set back to government policy by giving permission to operate to 4 star hotels bar. A new liquor policy is adopted by government to reduce liquor consumption in state and achieve ‘Total Prohibition by 2023’. Vaikundarajan says HC also refuse the petition of bar owners seeking 3 weeks stay on judgment.

Vaikundarajan feels it is a good policy and goal by Kerala government to Total Prohibition By 2023.
