Speaking in a media conference held at the District Secretariat yesterday, the District Secretary N.Vethanayagan said that the number of excessive bars will be reduced soon.
We have received several complaints from the public regarding bars in the district. Activities are being undertaken on the basis of these complaints and with the concurrence of the Governor to reduce this number. The bars in close proximity to schools and places of worships will be removed along with illegally operating bars.
