Panaji: The women's wing of the BJP in Goa has demanded that alcometers be installed in government offices to keep a tab on officials who show up to work drunk.
Bharatiya Mahila Morcha head Kunda Chodankar said it had received complaints about government officials getting drunk at a press conference at the party's state headquarters.
"We have received several complaints that government servants step out for lunch during their break and come back drunk. The use of alcometers will help keep this in check. Those suspected of having alcohol can be subjected to alcometer checks," Chodankar said.
Goa has a relatively liberal alcohol tax regime, making it available for cheap. Alcohol consumption is common among tourists as well as local residents.
