Chennai needs your help.

The photo shows a bus-stop (red ad banner) in Kandhanchavadi section of Old Mahabalipuram Road / OMR (Chennai). The bus stop is near Turyaa hotel (far left).

Issue: The shop immediately to the left (green banner) of the bus-stop is a TASMAC liquor outlet (run by the Government of Tamil Nadu). From the crowd outside the shop, it’s popularity is quite clear. The area is filled with many office buildings, employing many people. Many of them are working women. A significant number of them use the bus stop.

Chennai needs your help.

We are not discussing prohibition here. That is a political issue which is already talked about by many in Tamil Nadu. Having an uncontrolled crowd of liquor drinkers right next to a bus-stop is a major hazard for those who commute by bus, especially women.

What are we asking for?

Simply this. Let there not be a TASMAC liquor outlet near a bus-stop or any other public place of significance. What we are asking for is easy to implement. It is not a big deal for the people involved.

Let us start with the one in Kandhanchavadi, OMR, Chennai.

Please add your voice to ours by signing, sharing and talking about this petition.

Thanks. For our city. For the women in our family and our friends and others.
