Angry women trash liquor store in Kendrapada

Kendrapada: Hundreds of outraged female activists took out a morcha in the Baro panchayat here to put a stop to existing liquor dens.

“Earlier, there was a liquor shop near the village school which was shifted to another location — after facing protest from the villagers and it is where the liquor shop thrived in business,” sources said.  

However, since March last year, female activists of this panchayat have staged several demonstrations before the office of District Collector and Secretariat — protesting liquor shops in the locality. Since there was hardly any result, the female activists resorted to something drastic like this.
