Visakhapatnam: Deputy Chief Minister and Home Minister N Chinarajappa informed that the government will issue a GO shortly to facilitate shifting of wine shops abutting the national highways to help minimise road accidents.

Chinarajappa after inaugurating the Police Circle Office building on Sunday at Adda Road junction near Nakkapalli, built at a cost of Rs 70 lakh for which foundation stone was laid in 2008, told reporters that in view of getting more major industries on the coastal corridor, the new Circle Office assumed significance. The wine shops on the national highways would not be closed but would be shifted to safer places keeping road safety in view, he explained.
