Recently, in Visakhapatnam a group of women from the
All India Democratic Women’s Association sat blindfolded
in front of New Jalsa Wine shop in Santoshnagar, Tatichetlapalem to demand its shifting. They said that shops like Jalsa and others shouldn’t be near schools, temples or residential complexes. Also, the police should come to the aid of people who are fighting toward such an important issue and not intimidate them.
