People have rushed the liquor shops just a day after when the government nodded its head to open the shops amid lockdown. Several videos and pictures have surfaced the Internet in which long queues can be seen outside the liquor shops across the country.
The latest one has been shared from Nainital where alcoholic people didn’t disperse even after the area was hit by heavy hailstorms on Tuesday.
The video went viral on all social media platforms. An interesting part of the video is that all of them were maintaining the social distancing while holding an umbrella, waiting for their turn to buy a bottle of liquor amid heavy rain and hailstorm.
According to ANI reports, this scene was seen outside the liquor shop on Mall Road, Nainital.
The video was also shared by the Indian Forest Service (IFS) Officer, Parveen Kaswan on Twitter.
He captioned it, “Agnipath...Agnipath...Agnipath. Outside a liquor shop. Today via WhatsApp."
