Andhra Pradesh Mahila Samakhya (APMS) burnt the copies of GO copies pertaining to liquor policy announced by the State government on Tuesday.
The APMS activists led by president Penumatsa Durga Bhavani staged a dharna at Lenin Centre to register their protest. On the occasion, Ms. Durga Bhavani demanded the government to take necessary steps to curb the belt shops.
The Congress failed to honour its electoral promises that the liquor prohibition would be implemented in a phased manner.
Instead, the government was solely dependent on excise. The liquor was more freely available than drinking water, she criticised.
The government lost its credibility due to its dubious administration and policies.
The women were waging relentless battle against the liquor and liquor syndicates. But, the government has not responded positively.
It has no concern for the commoner, who was spending all his earnings on booze, she said, adding a comprehensive agitation would be chalked out Samakhya meetings to be held in Chennai from August 8.
Samakhya city general secretary Panchadarla Durgamba, president Orpu Bharati, Koragaji Durgamba and others spoke.
