"Alcohol addiction is increasing in the society as a result of which many families get dismantled. Through this program, we're trying to urge people to give up alcohol", said a local leader.

He further added, "We chose December 31 as on this day most of the people get drunk and create a ruckus. We are requesting them not to do so. So that the society can celebrate the occasion peacefully." Members of an NGO also came forward on the occasion of New Year to spread awareness on the importance of adherence to COVID-19 protocols amid rising cases of COVID-19 being reported from various parts of the country.
