Attapur: The liquor shop near Happy Homes Residential Complex in Upparpally at Pillar No. 185 of PVNR Expressway has become a cause of nuisance to the locals, whose complaints about the issue has remained unheard. Besides, the parked vehicles of commercial establishments in the main lane connecting the locality to road, the entrance of this lane is frequented by anti-social elements.
According to the residents, the women and children are finding it difficult to take the path while coming from main road, as almost any given time men under inebriated condition can be seen moving around. There are 9 blocks, over 700 flats and around a population of above 2700 living in the complex opposite to Mantra Mall. "Inside the complex there's a holy place of worship of Ismailia community as well as a mosque.
How can the government permit the liquor shop to operate within 100 meters of place of worship and educational institution? In October the government has renewed the contract despite the fact that residents have been opposing," lamented Owner's Welfare Association, president, Srinivas. He said that on several occasions the issue was taken to the notice of police officials, but it remained unresolved.
He said that residents had also requested the owners of the shop to relocate from the place, but they remained adamant. Other residents also pointed out that several complaints were lodged during past several years to Excise, Police, GHMC and others related to parking violations, but in vain.
The residents cautioned that if the concerned departments do not make the area free from parking menace, shut down liquor outlets on the approach road, other unlicensed food outlets near liqour outlets, they would be forced to take alternative steps. "For now, we have decided to meet the Cyberabad commissioner to take forward our concern," said Srnivas.
