BHIMAVARAM: Excise and Prohibition Department today organised a rally ‘Systematic Enforcement for Elimination of Belt Shops’ (SEEBS) here Sunday.

Undi MLA Sivarama Raju, who flagged off the rally, said that belt shops owners would be punished severly and added that licenses of the liquor shops who supply material to the belt shops would be also cancelled.

“The state government is very particular about desisting the belt shop system across the state,” he said and directed the officials of the Excise and Prohibition department to take appropriate action.

The awareness rally was organised to bring to people’s notice the illegality of belt shops and the fact that one should inform the government of any belt shop they know of.

Officials of Excise department were present.
