Gurgaon is an unplanned concrete city. We have designated green belts but hardly any greenery because they are encroached left and right. The gate keeper i.e. the government does not have any moral right to stop this encroachment because it is itself encouraging encroachment by issuing licenses to liquor vends on greenbelts along roadsides.
This is not about not having liquor shops. It’s about having these at the appropriate places like malls, shopping markets and other commercial establishments.
But as we have seen in democracy, logic and intellect does not count much, it is the number that matters. If you strongly believe that we need to rid our city of this nuisance then we need to show strength of numbers. Corrective actions will not happen if there is not a general consensus built on the issue. I hope people in Gurgaon will come forward to show support and share their views and experiences. Hopefully, we will together build a safer and secure Gurgaon that we can proudly call the Millennium City.
