Chennai: Superstar Rajinikant warns the ruling party AIADMK FOR OPENING THE liquor shops in Tamil Nadu. He says if it was done, it should not harbour “dreams” of coming to power again, apparently in next year’s Assembly elections. In a tweet, he also asked the government to work out alternate modes of revenue generation.

The AIADMK cannot have “dreams of coming to power again if the government re-opens TASMAC shops at this juncture,” the veteran said in the tweet. “Please #Look out for better ways of filling the coffers,” he added.

His remarks came a day after Tamil Nadu moved the Supreme Court, seeking a stay against a Madras High Court order directing closure of liquor shops in the state.

on May 8, the Madras High Court ordered the closure of state-run Tamil Nadu State Marketing Corporation (TASMAC) liquor outlets across Tamil Nadu after violations of social distancing norms amid the COVID-19 lockdown were reported. On Wednesday, the high court had refused to stay the Tamil Nadu government’s decision to re-open the TASMAC  liquor outlets on Thursday, across the state, barring Chennai City Police limits.

Tamil Nadu has so far reported 6535 cases of COVID-19, with 1824 recoveries, and 44 deaths
