Special sting conducted by NewsX exposes the black market of liquor sale in the state of Tamil Nadu. Our correspondent enumerated the free flow of liquor in the black market.
Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa, after her re-election, had announced the closure of 500 TASMAC liquor shops and the restriction of liquor sale beyond 10 pm. However, the black market has continued to go up by a 15% rise in alcohol sale, to reach a net worth of Rs.500 crores.
The question is, was the whole phased prohibition on liquor, a move by AIADMK to win the elections?
