Khargone (MP): The Madhya Pradesh government has decided against giving any fresh permits for setting up new liquor factory in the state.
"No new factory selling liquor that kills people would be allowed to set up in the state," Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan told reporters on the occasion of release of water in the Satak Dam from the Indira Sagar Dam`s main canal.
The Chief Minister made this announcement while responding to a question on the protest being staged by the Gayatri Pariwar on the issue of proposed liquor factory to be set up in Satrati and Chichlay villages in the Kasrawad Assembly segment.
The Gayatri Pariwar is staging a series of protest against the proposed liquor factory since last six months and had submitted a memorandum to Chouhan signed by over 50,000 people on the issue.
