KHOTANG: Mothers in Khotang district have started door to door campaign against selling of alcohol saying its consumption has destroyed property, created brawls in families and made negative impact in health.
Mothers at the initiative of the Mothers' Group established in Diktel have visited door-to-door to ban the selling of alcohol to build a civilised society.
According to Treasurer of the Mothers' Group, Jamuna Acharya, they have prohibited entry into homes whoever comes after drinking alcohol, to establish an alcohol-free society.
Number of people consuming alcohol has decreased in Diktel after Mothers' Groups charge fines and publish and transmit names and photos of those, who consume alcohol, through media.
Mothers have requested Chief District Officer (CDO), Keshab Raj Acharya, for security, saying some people have been involved in making the campaign a failure.
Mothers have been excited towards their work, after CDO Acharya expressed the commitment to provide support as per the law.
