The Asian Age - - Nation -

Panaji: The Goa gov­ern­ment is mulling fram­ing a rule to fix re­spon­si­bil­ity on liquor out­lets to en­sure drunk cus­tomers don’t drive back home in the night. Chief min­is­ter Manohar Par­rikar said this on Satur­day while an­nounc­ing a slew of mea­sures to curb drink- driv­ing re­lated ac­ci­dents in the tourist state. He said the po­lice de­part­ment would ini­ti­ate strin­gent ac­tion against those driv­ing in an ine­bri­ated state. It has pro­cured 100 al­come­ters ( breath anal­y­sers) at a cost of 36 lakh to curb drink- driv­ing. The CM was ad­dress­ing a gath­er­ing at Cana­cona.
