To vent ire against indifferent attitude of concerned authorities in removing liquor shops situated near educational institutions, hospitals and religious places in the city, a large number of members of National Students' Union of India (NSUI) burnt the effigy of Excise Minister, on Wednesday.


NSUI members said that the District Administration and Excise Department is paying no heed to remove the liquor shop situated near English Wine Shop in Beoharbagh area. They said the shop is situated near Polytechnic College in Beoharbagh. Some hospitals and girls' school is also not far off from the shop.


NSUI members said that for the last several months they have been submitting memorandums to all concerned authorities to remove the shop but the authorities concerned are paying no heed to their demand. They said a large number of people come to the hospitals for treatment. Likewise, devotees also throng temple for rituals. Similarly, hundreds of girl students also use the road to go to their School and College.


NSUI members said anti-social elements throng the liquor shop in large number and create inconvenience for people. They pass comments at girl students and also misbehave with passerby. They said girl students feel very uncomfortable and insecure while crossing the road in front of liquor shop. Therefore, they have been demanding the administration to remove the shops immediately.


NSUI members said the concerned authorities have knowledge about presence of school, college and hospitals in the area despite they have allotted license for the liquor shop. They said the shop has become nonsense for area people. NSUI members have demanded the district administration to remove the liquor shop immediately or else they would intensify their protest. Amongst those present on the occasion were Rijwan Ali Koty, Badal Panjwani, Ayush Choudhary, Monu Gautam, Yashu Neekhra, Azhar Ali, Sahil Yadav, Sagar Shukla, Kapil Bhojak,
Karan Tamsetwar, Rahul Rajak and others.
