Liquor prohibition and bootlegging
April 25, 2016 1:32pm CST
Every once in a while politicians come up with the policy to stop liquor being sold in their State. The process promotes bootlegging (which is illegal brewing and selling of liquor and consequent generation of black money which does not do good for the economy). Me says punish the guy who drinks. Not the one who sells. Let anybody who finds a person drinking take them to the police or report on them to police and collect a decent amount of 100 or 200 for reporting. Let that person who drinks stay in lock up for the whole night. Other rights deprivation can also be considered. I love Anna Hazareji. He really used to get mad at drunkards not taking care of family. We need vigilante's like that.

Well, as a matter of fact, the cops here have been told to detain people who are found driving after drinking for a night. They are also asked to call up their family, let them know that they have detained the person and if the family wants him/her back, they can do so after a penalty of 1000-5000 INR (Depending on the cases this person is involved in). But that is all that is to it. Until now no one has been detained and it has been about 2 months they came out with this. And no wonder if they tell us that there is no one drinking or buying or even no one is now drinking and driving.
