No new liquor factory will be allowed in state: Shivraj Singh Chouhan
Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Monday announced that permission will not be granted to set up new liquor factory in the state henceforth.
"Some days back, we received requests seeking permissions to set up two distilleries. However, we threw away the applications as we have decided not to allow any new distillery in the state," Chouhan said on the sidelines of a programme in Indore. He said that no new liquor shop will also be allowed in the state.
"The number of liquor shops will also be reduced gradually by conducting de-addiction programmes for the people," he said. Chouhan further said that the government is also taking efforts to reduce the child mortality rate.
Chouhan expressed confidence that the ambitious Narmada-Kshipra Simhasth link project would be dedicated to the people by February 2014.
