    This is not the first time that lottery price was increased. It was increased from Rs 5/= to Rs. 10/= and again to Rs. 20/= but this is the first time picket is carryout against it. Now picketing has become a Joke !

    Yeah, people know who is behind all these. Why govt can't increase the price?

    ACTUALLY, BUYING LOTTERY IS LIKE OFFICIAL GAMBLING.

    Lotteries are not essential and in any case if alcohol and drugs and tobacco are restricted then gambling is the next vice. Also if price increased like cigarettes, those who want will still buy. Why should the agents appointed by previous govt protest unless for politics.
