Himalayan Paths

Musabani: The women of Mahalipara and Rangamatia villages of Musabani have declared a ban on the sale and consumption of liquor in their area. They threatened to deal squarely with those trying to violate the decision taken by them.

In this connection, members of Mahila Sashaktikaran Manch, a local outfit of women, organized a meeting in Mahalipara on Sunday to formulate strategy to ensure zero sale and consumption of liquor. The Gram Pradhan Gaurav Kisku said a unanimous decision had been taken by the women of the two villages to stop sale and consumption of liquor in their villages. The women have taken a pledge to implement strict ban on liquor with the help of all villagers, informed Kisku.

The Manch secretary Lata Rani Manki and assistant secretary Jaleswari led the village women in the anti-hooch campaign. They said the villagers were convinced by their logic against the use of alcohol. �The people of our villages have already suffered a lot due to alcoholism among several youths and men. Now they want no more of it. We are decided and committed for the cause,� said the two leaders.

The Gram Pradhan said the liquor business was bound to affect the progress of villages adversely. He said the people had been given a chance to give up their association with liquor either as a trader or a consumer. He said police complaint would be made against liquor traders in case they try to threaten the women campaigners or use their influence in any manner.

The women campaigners actively spreading message against alcohol and its hazardous effects on human life include Gayatri Hansda, Sakri Kisku, SunitaMahali, Sushil Kisku, MahiMahi, Malti Kisku and Urmila Mardy.
