Wednesday, May 12, 2021 • Telugu Comments

Soon after a 10-day lockdown was announced on Tuesday, liquor sales in the State went north. Wine shops attracted long queues of men who didn't know that liquor shops can be opened from 6 am to 10 am every day during the lockdown. Drinkers just didn't want to take a chance and were willing to take a chance with coronavirus instead as they crowded wine shops.

On Tuesday, the highest figure came from the Ranga Reddy district, which logged Rs 24 Cr.

In Hyderabad's Tonique, sales to the tune of Rs 3.5 Cr were registered in just 6 hours.
