KCR plans low priced liquor to curb spurious brews

KCR(177)

The Telangana government plans to eliminate the menace of ‘Gudumba’ (a spurious intoxicating drink) in its new excise policy which is being prepared, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao said here today.

According to a release issued by his office, Rao, who held an excise policy review, said that cheap but safe liquor would be brewed under government supervision in order to save the lives of people and protect their health, though the government may lose revenue in the process.

Since the price of liquor would be low, it would stop people from consuming spurious liquor, the release quoted Rao as saying.

It would also be possible to control the percentage of alcohol in liquor since it would be brewed under government supervision, he said.
