PD Act to curb ‘gudumba’ makers

Liquor-Ex.2-LCM KCR has ordered excise officers to invoke the PD Act ( Prevention of Dangerous Activities Act ) to crack down on unsocial elements while conducting raids on ‘gudumba’ manufacturers in villages. Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao at a review meeting with top officers in secretariat directed them for issue licenses to sell cheap liquor with village mandals as a unit. The rationale behind the attempt is to supply cheap liquor in order to replace the sale of ‘gudumba’ in villages as it was claiming the lives of the poor consumer, who is addicted to it. State Government has decided to implement new excise policy from October 1, with a view to protecting the health of people while selling cheap liquor bottles at a cheaper rate. A notification is to be issued after August 15. Stating that excise department’s negligence led to the promotion of ‘gudumba’ trade, he directed that police and excise officiers must jointly work to check the supply of said duplicate liquor. Beverages corporation would be made a department and cm has decided to appoint a DIG level officer to head the excise department. The government has decided to issue shop licenses on lottery basis.  KCR directed officers to make short films, posters and cultural programmes to raise awareness among people how the duplicate liquor is harmful.
