It remains to be seen where does the death toll of coronavirus infected lead to. But then, surely, Alcohol addicts death toll will be more in number than corona deaths subject to the extension of lockdown.
Modi's 21-day lockdown showed its adverse effects drastically on poor and middle classes. Many workers who live on daily wages are starving for food. And the strange symptoms of Alcohol addicts is yet another unwanted happening at the moment.
In these dry days, Alcoholics hardly get liquor anywhere which resulted losing mental balance and insanity. It's learnt that more than 300 cases have been registered at Erragadda hospital for the past few days.
In Kerala, six Alcohol addicts have been dead for the past two days.
"Think. Government should for sometime in the evening open all licensed liquor stores. Don’t get me wrong. Man will be at home only what with all this depression, uncertainty around. Cops,doctors,civilians etc... need some release. Black mein to sell ho hi raha hai. State governments desperately need the money from the excise. Frustration should not add up with depression. As it is pee to rahe hain legalize kar do no hypocrisy. My thoughts," Veteran Bollywood star Rishi Kapoor advised to the governments recently.
Meanwhile, Meghalaya state government is learnt have been supplying the Alcohol to those addicts through door delivery who produced doctor certificate in online.
Perhaps, lifting up lockdown would end all these hardships.
