Delhi: Locals line up outside liquor shops even as alcohol turns 70% costlier with 'special corona fee'

Locals in Delhi were seen lining up outside liquor shops on Tuesday, even as the government announced the imposition of 70 per cent of tax on the maximum retail price of liquor. The 'special corona fee' on the sale of liquor was announced by the Delhi government on Monday, the first day of resale of liquor and wine in the country ever since the lockdown had been imposed. The government has allowed 150 state-run liquor shops outside the coronavirus containment zones in the national capital. Earlier in the day, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said all relaxations in the areas where people violate social-distancing and other health norms will be withdrawn.
