Dry Days coming to India at the end of the month


The government has announced that there will be five dry days at the end of this month. These are January 26, 30, 31 and February 1 and 2 – so that people remain sober on Republic Day, the Mahatma’s death anniversary and the three days before, during and after the civic elections (Maharashtra only). As the Times of India has reported, drinkers have been stocking up on their ‘liquid ammo.’
Others like Sony Sachdev, an advisor to the All India Hotels & Restaurants Association (AHAR) emphasize that it will result in big losses for the industry. His organization is appealing to the government to change the laws.
