Shivraj ji, when you were in opposition, used to protest a lot about liquor in the state, gave a lot of speeches, used to sit on dharna along with them, while describing liquor as a threat to sisters and daughters.
Now you have made sisters and daughters sit at liquor shops?

Duty imposed as per rules
Deputy Controller Excise Control Atul Dubey said that the duty of all officers has been imposed by the department as per rules. If we talk about women officers, then it is a part of their duty. However, their duty is not to sell liquor but to monitor it. There is nothing like controversy in this.
