Request for alternative livelihood for women selling country liquor and ban it...

My name is Aparna Marandi. I am calling from Giridih district in Jharkhand. Whichever market I go to, urban or rural, I find poor women selling local made liquor called hadia. And people are drinking it without thinking about their family and future. It also gives livelihood to these poor women. I request to Govt to give alternative livelihood to these poor women and put a ban on hadia. This is destroying many lives. For more Aparna can be reached at 09771949885
