The Kerala Madhya Nirodhana Samithi has urged Excise Minister K. Babu to expose the nexus between corrupt officials of the Excise department and liquor sellers who operated “cheap counters” in bar-attached hotels.

The samithi also condemned the opening of a liquor super market by the government and decided that protests against the super market would be organised in all districts. It also decided to organise awareness programmes against liquor consumption at 100 points in Thiruvanathapuram district from November 1 to 10.
