The 1stnewz Staff : When long queues in front of liquor shops in Haryana continued unabated during the nationwide lockdown, the media confronted the deputy chief minister Dushyant chautala with uncomfortable questions. The deputy chief minister was asked why liquor shops were opening at a time when essential items were not available. Chautala came up with a gem. " Public health crisis is already troubling us. If drinking stops large number of people will fall sick. They will come to hospitals and the doctor will have to treat them. This is an avoidable diversion."
