Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Monday announced to open liquor shops in the state, amid the fourth phase of coronavirus lockdown. Amid coronavirus lockdown 4.0, the state government is planning to give some relief in green and orange zones. Besides liquor shops, some other shops could also be allowed to open.
The state government had followed the three phases of lockdown strictly, to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state. Of the 24 districts, Ranchi and Garwah are in the red zone and the rest in green and orange zones.
The Hemant Soren government agreed to open the liquor shops considering the financial condition of the state, an IANS report said earlier. Several other states took the decision to open the liquor shops with the commencement of Lockdown 3 with some relaxations.
