WSSU opposes partial lifting of liquor prohibition
Dimapur, March 9 (EMN): While opposing partial lifting of the Nagaland Liquor Total Prohibition (NLTP) Act 1989, the Western Sumi Students’ Union (WSSU) has urged the state government to act and come out with detail and comprehensive strategy to curb the menace rather than partial lifting of the act.
In a representation to the advisor of Sericulture, Excise and Minority Affairs, WSSU stated that since NLTP Act is a legislation, it empowers the government to act and come out with a detailed and comprehensive strategy to curb this menace rather than partial lifting of the act.
The union also pointed out that it would be unjust on the part of the government to barter the life of the student community, common public and future generation with the state revenue. It added that apart from liquor, many sectors such as tourism, sports, entertainment have been providing the highest revenue in other cities, states and countries.
The union, therefore, stated that it would be a mistake for a mature government to let the tower of ‘Nagaland for Christ’ fall down for scanty state revenue.
