Suriya’s Director In Big Trouble For His Tweet Against Women !!


A particular picture of nearly a dozen number of women standing in queue to buy liquor in Bangalore is going viral in social media platforms with various kind of captions. Due to the relaxation in lockdown, implemented by the ministry of home affairs, large number of people gathered outside liquor shops in Bangalore on Monday morning. The liquor shops in Karnataka are functioning from 9 AM to 7 PM. However the relaxation is not applicable in containment zones. This ruckus has forced authorities to place restrictions on how many bottles an individual could buy.

People started forming queues from 5 A.M in the morning to buy liquor in the streets of Bengaluru. They started crowding various parts of the city including Indiranagar 100 feet road, central Bengaluru on MG road and Cunningham road in Vasanth road crowded. As there are high chances for the shops to get closed, people are buying liquor bottles as much as they can.

The Karnataka government ordered certain liquor shops to open which were closed since 22nd of March. A single person is restricted to buy more than three bottles of spirits, six bottles of 650 ML beer or 12 bottles of 300 ML beer per person. A separate line for women was formed in a wine shop in Banglore to help them maintain social distancing. That particular picture attracted the users of online medium to express their comments.
