People Queue Outside Liquor Shops As India Relaxes Lockdown Norms

On 4th May people were seeing gathering outside wine shops even before the stores opened, some, as early as 7.:30 AM. Ever since the lockdown started on 24th March, people have been struggling to get alcohol, some were even caught tring to sell during the lockdown.

Social distancing ? What’s that ?

Shocked to see today’s scenes at #LiquorShops in Andhra Pradesh. Common sense says that people will throng in large numbers, but there is no contingency plan from @ysjagan nor is there a care for social distance.

These visuals are from all over country, no social distancing, no precautionary measure, as well as no mask were spotted in some cases. In the national capital, cops had to shut down some liquor stores and even enforced laathicharge to disperse the crowd.

However, tweeteratis reacted to this in the most humours way possible…

The air in Bengaluru is so clear that I can even see the end of this liquor shop queue. #LiquorShops — Ramesh Srivats (@rameshsrivats) May 4, 2020
