Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Oommen Chandy Wednesday reiterated in the Assembly that the aim of his government is to achieve "total prohibition" in the state within a 10-year period.
Chandy was replying to a motion given notice by the Left Opposition in the Assembly.
"You need not have any apprehension that we are going to dilute the liquor policy. Our aim is to achieve total prohibition in a period of 10 years," he said.
Chandy said the state government was currently working on certain corrections in the liquor policy declared Aug 21.
The United Democratic Front (UDF) meeting Monday gave the nod to the Chandy government to make necessary corrections in the liquor policy which has drawn a lot of criticism in the state.
