    Citizens are more. Now pregnant women more. Ok reduce the citizens opening the bar and you can increase the kids with deliveries. Good idea opening the bar our hon. Minister. Third one ministers can make money because license are belong to ministers only.

    If we look at things in a negative way everything the government of the day do would be wrong. It’s a person’s personal choice whether to consume alcohol or not. When liquor shops are closed people tend to drink illegally manufactured alcohol and also to buy in the black market. Therefore I think a person has a right to decide whether he or she should consume alcohol or not, whether they should spend that money on their families or not. We as outsiders cannot say what people should do, it’s their life and it’s about their loved ones. They need to be rational not the daily mirror readers.

    See the pictures. No distance at all. Hungry for liquor. Never learn a lesson.

    Most of the licence owners and ministers. President won't care about this. His brothers might have licence also.

    Banning liquor has never worked. It only increases the craving and resort to illicit alcohol and drugs. Those who enjoy a drink after a hard days work or in company or in times of stress must not be penalised because of those who cannot control themselves. Overindulgence in anything be it alcohol, liquor,sex and many other things which used sensibly gives pleasure leads to disaster. The answer is not to ban these things but to practice moderation,self discipline the middle path.
