New Delhi: Liquor will no longer be available for 6 days in the country's capital Delhi this year. The Arvind Kejriwal government of Delhi has released a new list of dry days under the new liquor policy. Under this, alcohol will not be available for 6 days in a year. Let me tell you that in the liquor policy of the Kejriwal government, which was disputed, only three days were declared dry days.
Now the AAP government of Delhi has released a new dry day list for the rest of 2022. According to this new list, October 5 i.e. Dussehra, Milad un Nabi (Prophet Mohammad's birthday) October 9, Maharishi Balmiki Jayanti October 9, Diwali October 24, Guru Nanak Jayanti November 8 and Guru Tegh Bahadur Martyrdom Day 21 November have been declared dry days. That is, there will be no sale of liquor in the national capital these days.
Let me tell you that the Kejriwal government implemented a new liquor policy in Delhi last year. Many major amendments were made in it. However, this policy has come into question due to allegations of corruption. The CBI is investigating the case. After being embroiled in controversy, the government withdrew this policy. However, as soon as the investigation started, the Kejriwal government took a U-turn and once again implemented the old liquor policy in Delhi from September 1.
