Enforce total prohibition: Alagiri
Tamil Nadu Congress Committee (TNCC) president KS Alagiri on Monday urged the State government to make use of the lockdown and enforce total prohibition in the State.
Remarking that the lockdown was a blessing in disguise, Alagiri, in a statement, asked, “Why are the Tasmac shops run in Tamil Nadu? Do the people benefit from it? Why are the rulers operating the Tasmac shops despite knowing well that the people are losing human resource and their livelihood?” Alleging that Tasmac shops were being run only because they contribute Rs 36,000 crore per year to the State exchequer, the TNCC chief said, “On one hand, govt is destroying the livelihood of the people by running Tasmac shops. On the other hand, they are distributing freebies to fetch votes,” he said.
