Drink is too ‘soft’ it seems, for women?
Raipur, March 07: The ‘Samajik Ekta Manch’ and ‘Nari Shakti Sangathan’ had registered protest over the serving of ‘liquor’ in cover of soft drinks by Magneto Mall based Ten Downing Street (T.D.S) pub as per the advertisement released where they had claimed to provide free of cost soft drinks on ‘International Women’s Day protest, March 8.
Bhupendra Singh, convenor of the organisations talking to ‘Clipper28.com’ said that the advertisement was seen released by T.D.S Bar based at Magneto Mall at Raipur that on Women’s Day they are providing free drinks to the women in name of women liberation, which is a mockery of women based in Chhattisgarh. On one side the whole of state is protesting against sale of liquor and women are most affected standing for prohibition, on other side at Mall, the Pub is releasing the advertisement promoting free drinking, is trying to play with the sentiments of people.
He adds that it is irrational act against the culture and civilisation of state and disrespect towards the mothers and sisters. There is need for prohibition against the Pub owners by filing criminal complaint for organising such events and it should be banned. An application would be filed before collector and Women Commission through a complaint demanding to halt such event.
Supporting the move K K Kothari and Neha Tiwari, both office bearers of organisation said that if the event is not withdrawn then, strong protest would be organised at the Magneto Mall.
Singh said that tomorrow, around 200 to 500 women would be participating in the event to check the pub is actually serving soft drinks or some other drinks. If it is soft drink, then it is ok, everyone can participate in the event.
He said that how can they justify the fact that there are several incidents reported that at around 3.00 am, the women could be seen in inebriated status. He claimed that he has solid evidences of what is being claimed, where they are claiming it to be a pub cum restaurant. The district and police administration has knowledge of serving liquor to women, but is shying away from taking any action, he alleged.
The pub manager was called on number 8878491616, the person picked the phone when asked said the women have the liberty to do as per their wish and the pub cum restaurant is providing them the opportunity. On Women’s day they are providing such an opportunity as they can accompany one male member while the servings to male would have a cost while for the women it would be free of cost. He denied that alcohol is being served but said that it is mock tail would be served as soft drinks. There is no alcoholic drink.
He denied of having any knowledge of any protest against the event but said that only soft drinks are being served to mark the event of Women’s Day.
He clarified that in the advertisement released they had not mentioned specifically soft drinks but categorically said that served drink is soft drink.
