Mysuru, July 26:- In what should go down as a bizarre incident, one section of the people was protesting against a wine shop, while another section was all for it. The incident happened at Heeralli village in HD Kote taluk here on Wednesday.
Womenfolk of the village were protesting when they came to know that a wine shop was given permission to come up on the outskirts of the village. On the other hand, certain volunteers, belonging to DSS, also staged a protest at the same time, though not against the wine shop coming up in the village. Many of them opined that the village needed a wine shop badly and women opposing it should realise it.
The concerned authorities, it seems, are in a piquant situation. It will be interesting to see if they will oblige women who are opposing it or favour the men who are for it! (MR/KS).
