In a decision that may come as a weekend spoiler for many, the Gurgaon administration has decided to announce three dry days from May 14 to 16 in the city.

The order has been issued to ensure security and keep a check on nefarious activities during the first ever municipal elections to be held this Sunday.

The decision will also affect the business of 300 liquor vends and 180 bars of the city. According to the order issued by district magistrate PC Meena, “No liquor shops, hotels, restaurants, clubs and other establishments selling or serving liquor shall be permitted to sell or serve liquor to any person on the aforesaid dates.”

Even joints which have special permits will have to follow the orders.
