Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa on Saturday promised phased, but complete, prohibition in the State if her party was re-elected to power, Indian media reports.

Jayalalithaa eased into the subject midway through her speech at a meeting to launch the party’s campaign for the Assembly polls.

While liquor could not be abolished with a single stroke, her goal was to implement a phased project that would end in complete prohibition, she said.

Elaborating on the process, Jayalalithaa said first the working hours of the TASMAC liquor shops would be reduced, the number of shops would then be reduced, the bars attached to them closed, and rehabilitation centres would be opened.
