    What is bad on one day is always bad. Why ban alcohol on specific days only. Very stupid and silly. Those who want will stock early.What is the message we are trying to deliver. YOU ARE FREE TO DRINK ON ANY DAY BUT PLEASE BUY YOUR STOCK EARLY ON VESAK DAYS AND WORLD TEMPERANCE DAY!!!!

    Who cares?. First, stop closing the theaters on poya days. That's not a bad thing to do than buying illegal liquor.

    What a joke. The whole purpose is to stop people from drinking on that day NOT selling the stuff.
