    Government is worried about the Income not worried about the public.

    The Rajapaksa family have allready expand the taxes. So open the liquor shops for more money from the poor man. Sri Lanka is a Banana Repiblic, what else

    You are absolutely right

    Why not open the wine stores so the supermarkets were left tor grocery only.

    Government must think what is good and what is not in this situation. Opening liquor store in this situation is not good idea. Government lack of money so opening unwanted things.

    It is natural for a government to worry about its income. A government cannot keep on distributing money as demanded by the opposition, not forgetting that money given by the government is mostly spent on liquor.

    Where the police ? Tough rules ??? some no masks , mad Kks below nostrils and no Social distancing, no ID checking What’s going on. Responsible people following rules have to suffer indefinitely because of these alcoholics and no control or monitoring by police or govt What good are polices if communication and implementation are poor.

    I wonder whether the government authorities are mad to open the liquor shops.
