Vizag (Andhra Pradesh), July 26 (ANI): Agitated by Andhra Pradesh excise minister Kothapalli Samuel Jawahar’s controversial comment on ‘beer being a healthy drink’, women activists in Vizag have come out to protest. The women protestors have intensified their actions to stop beer shops from opening in residential areas. Earlier this month, Jawahar said that the government has given permission for beer shops because it is not injurious to health. A recent directive by Supreme Court of India had ordered to close wine shops on National and State Highways. The shops had to be 500 meters away from the highway and they are now falling in residential areas in Coimbatore invoking agitation among people.
