Sale o f cheap liquor: The article published by StarMetro on May 9`.
THE Klang Consumers Association has taken the authorities to task for failing to stop the rampant sale of cheap liquor in the royal town.
Its president A. Devadass said cheap liquor was sold at many convenience stores and mini markets in Klang as well as Port Klang, Pandamaran, Meru, Kapar, Kampung Jawa and Taman Sentosa.
The operators of the business premises were capitalising on the huge market for the products, he added.
“Cheap liquor is especially popular among foreign workers,’’ he told StarMetro.
Devadass was commenting on an article in StarMetro which reported that cheap liquor was being widely sold in Klang’s Little India.
Besides foreigners, Devadass said, the easy availability of the liquor had also encouraged drunk and disorderly behaviour.
He said he was concerned about the liquor being sold to youths, especially students.
Devadass said lack of enforcement by the authorities had resulted in the mushrooming of such premises.
He said the Klang Municipal Council, Customs Department and police should carry out a joint operation against the premises.
“A massive crackdown on such activities is needed and the operators penalised,’’ he said.
