THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala Bar Hotels Association, which has faced a major setback in the bar case in the Supreme Court, said on Tuesday that it would consider filing a review petition against the apex court’s verdict that upheld the state government’s liquor policy.
“We will take all possible legal steps against the verdict that has upheld the state government’s policy of confining bar licence to only five star hotels,” association general secretary M D Dhanesh said. He said that they would consult senior advocates and take a final decision on filing the review petition. As it was a court holiday, senior lawyers were on leave. Once they were available, all legal aspects would be discussed about the possibility of filing a review petition, Dhanesh said.
