Uttar Pradesh will soon have a new excise policy under which no liquor shops would be allowed along highways, near educational institutions or religious places and in densely populated areas.

This was announced by chief minister Yogi Adityanath at the inaugural session of the BJP state executive meeting in Lucknow.

His announcement assumes significance in the light of a number of hooch tragedies in the state in recent years.
