Though I personally never drink, I am never in favour of prohibition. In my life, I have noted that people are attracted more towards the items they don't get easily. They pay higher price for the items i.e. they buy liquor like items in black. This also contributes to sell spurious liquor. I am aware of the accidents etc occurring due to drinks. But I have noted that people drive vehicle even after getting drunk and even after told that the driving is dangerous. They show unnecessary overconfidence. Some time they even abuse the advisers. Only police can control such people. But how much force we would need? In my way remove restrictions and don't encourage black marketing. Let government earn the revenue. Make rules more harsh on drunken driving. Let govt bring a subsidized liquor and stop this 'haatbhatti' like thing.Do good prachar to divert people from drinking. Ultimately, leave people to face their fate if they want to continue.

Prohibition.- liquor
by Gladyschellam (View MyPage) on Oct 14, 2016 12:18 PM

TN had prohibition till mid 1971. May be 3/4 generations did not aware of liquor. May be because of this the state would have grown faster than other states. Worst affected are women from poor and their children. Govt headed by Mr M Karunanithi introduced during 1971. Ofcourse more youths who have never experienced started experiencing-however DMK introduced ban on liquor on 31.8.1974. Later the ban was lifted by Late Mr MGR during early 80s and still it continues. For worthless freebies giving, prohibition was lifted. It is sheer for personal political gains. If correct datas are taken and analysed we could see the increase in attrocities, murders, rapes and number of widows - must be more from poor and downtrodden people - may be more gains for politicians, bureaucrats and powered men.

Can't you think of a more sensible approach to this
by Harish Manwani (View MyPage) on Oct 12, 2016 04:16 PM

You don't need to impose prohibition, and then create extra work for the police, not to mention deaths due to illicit liquor. Reduce the availability instead. Reduce the number of outlets, and working hours of the outlets. But no political party will talk about these things, because regulation and control obviously does not sound as good as saying "let us hang the drinkers."

Alcohol cannot be banned fully,if it ban illicit liquor trade will arise, it will be started by political persons,hence so many people die due to this,it happens recently in Bihar illicit liquor spur so many people drink and die.
secondly tamilnadu nadu people are always fond of habit whatever whosever give free they will accept without hesitation, it is a kind of mentallity, that people are always of other things which comes free, not spending money.

alcohol to be banned in maharashtra
by J Arora (View MyPage) on May 22, 2016 12:42 PM

alcohol may be banned in maharashtra as hotels have increased prices by five to ten times making it unaffordable to drink it. So government is thinking the only way out is to ban its selling. entire school fees and household expenses like electricity and food is going into purchase of alcohol in maharashtra leading to a downfall in economy.

Liquor Ban
by (View MyPage) on Apr 29, 2016 12:54 PM  | Hide replies

T N had experienced earlier on liquor ban. Cheap vote bank statements perhaps does not work as ban was lifted subsequently. TN known for hooch tragedies if ban occurs. Neighbor states will gain. This is what happened when AP was under liquor ban during NTRs period. This may not succeed as most of the politicians do require liquor as the sun sets.
