Atul Sethi started this petition to Mr Narendra Modi and all state CMs (Prime Minister of India & Chief Ministers of States)

In what is clearly our biggest challenge as a nation , a government which has so far steered the nation so well and a leader who has got the admiration of the world for his handling of this crisis in a country with as many complexities as India, has failed all it's citizens miserably by allowing liquor shops to open.

Nothing and no reason can be good enough to expose those who consume alcohol, their immediate families and the entire community to this vice. The sale of liquor is going to divert money away from food and healthcare in the low income strata to the daily dose of liquor, will trigger more instance of domestic abuse and child abuse in homes in an already torrid time and will also lead to reduced immunity for those who cannot resist the bottle. It will earn excise and revenue but the cost we will pay for the same is immense. 

My appeal to you Dear Mr Narendra Modiji  and to all the  state CMs is to use the powers vested in you and disallow the sale of liquor in any part of this country till we come out of this pandemic and get back on our feet.

I hope you will not let 1.4 billion Indians down and by prohibiting the sale of liquor immediately will set another example to the world of how India puts Purpose and People before Profits !!!
