Incontinent liquor sales

Later addressing the media, the CLP leader hit out at the government for incontinent sale of liquor to boost the State’s income. “In all the cases the accused were in an inebriated condition when committing the heinous crimes,” he pointed out while recounting the gory incidents which took place in the State recently, and demanding a check on free flow of liquor.
