UP city Liquor salesmen have put up posters outside the shop in Saifai, a town in Uttar Pradesh’s district of Etawah, claiming that only people who have Covid Vaccination Certificates will be sold alcohol.
They said that the subdivision officer in the zone instructed them not to sell liquor to those who were not shot, ANI said. “We sell liquor only after we have verified the customer’s vaccination certificate,” the news agency said.
But Kamal Kumar Shukla, district excise officer of Etawah, said: “The order was not issued. The sellers of liquors might have been asked by the SDM to get people vaccinated.”
Uttar Pradesh is a state in northern India. It is the most populous state in India and the world’s most populous country subdivision, with a population of over 200 million people.
During British rule, it was established on April 1, 1937, as the United Provinces of Agra and Oudh, and was renamed Uttar Pradesh in 1950, earning it the abbreviation UP.
The state is divided into 18 divisions and 75 districts, with Lucknow serving as the state capital and Allahabad as the judicial capital. On November 9, 2000, a new state, Uttaranchal (now Uttarakhand), was formed from the state’s Himalayan hill region.
The state’s two major rivers, the Ganges and the Yamuna, meet at Triveni Sangam in Allahabad and flow together. Gomti and Saryu are also prominent rivers.
The state’s forest cover accounts for 6.09% of the State. The area under cultivation is 82% and the net area under cultivation amounts to 68,5% of the total area.
