At least 77 bars across Kerala reopened today after the implementation of the new liquor policy of the Left Democratic Front (LDF) government, turning Sunday into a celebration day for tipplers across the state. As part of the new liquor policy, bars attached to three-star hotels and above have been allowed to serve hard liquor, signalling a reversal of liquor policy initiated by the previous Congress-led UDF government. Under the partial prohibition liquor policy implemented by the Oommen Chandy government from April 2014 to March 2017, only five-star hotels and government-run outlets could serve hard liquor. As a result, around 700 bars were asked to shut down and serve only beer and wine to customers.
