In line with the NLTP Act 1989, DVC chairman Ghuzui Shohe while delivering short speech said that it has become a vested interest business. He also spoke on how alcohol abuse and alcoholism within a family has become a problem destroying marriages or driving a wedge between members. Mentioning about the importance of community participation, Shohe also informed that in the later days, if needed the names of the investors who were part of the menace would be informed to the community to impose action against the defaulters. 
Furthermore, he called upon all to come together as one to eradicate the menace from the society and look forward for peaceful coexistence.
