Bhubaneswar: The overcrowding of Odisha State Beverages Corporations Ltd (OSBCL) premises by liquor dealers led to complete violation of social distancing norms. Resultantly, the district administration raided the office and disbursed the crowd.
Over 300 dealers were reportedly in the premises and had to return empty-handed.
The Officer-In-Charge of the OSBCL stated that the corporation has always strived to maintain the COVID-19 regulations mandated by the State Government and will continue to do so. He added that crowd management had become difficult for them and hence the raid. The officer added that so far even the dealers have complied with social distancing norms.
