Maharashtra is among the states worst-affected by the coronavirus and over here, the state government has decided to open liquor shops in Red Zones.

However, Aurangabad MP Imtiaz Jaleel has warned that if liquor shops are opened in Red Zones, he will get them closed by violating restrictions. He said that he will make women take to the streets because in this hour of crisis, the problems faced by women will increase if liquor is sold.

V Narayansamy, Chief Minister of Congress-ruled Puducherry, has ordered the opening of all kinds of factories, shops and restaurants. He has warned that action will be taken if social distancing norms are not followed. However, no decision has been taken on opening liquor shops in Puducherry.

Other than liquor shops, salons have also opened in some states. In Andhra Pradesh’s Vijayawada, social distancing norms are being followed around salons.

Goa has become coronavirus-free and hair salons have been opened in Panaji as well.
