#RamyaKrishnan what a shame @meramyakrishnan smuggling beers and black labels. Is it for internal consumption or for sale? Do u mean to say that the driver has loaded without your knowledge? Whether every smuggler will get the same treatment. pic.twitter.com/UvtMhGtimt

As states across the country are opening up for liquor sales through restobars, over the counter shops, Tamil Nadu received a stay from Supreme Court regarding the sale of liquor and violations of social distancing during the process of sale. However, the recent update is that the Supreme Court has given the State Government the option to choose the method of sale considering TASMAC liquor sales are vital for the Government’s coffers.
