PMK youth wing leader and Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) Dr. Anbumani Ramdoss has called upon the Tamil Nadu government to close down all liquor shops in the wake of five persons losing their lives in a gang war on the day of the opening of TASMAC shops.

He said,” It is now clear that alcohol is the reason for all the murders and in the days to come it will be proven that alcohol will be the root cause of all increasing incidents of crime.”
The PMK leader said that alcohol is the root cause of all the problems and demanded that all the liquor shops are shut down in the state for the welfare of the people of the state.
The former Union health minister said that the state government must forego the revenue earnings by the sale of liquor.
