The members of governing council of the press club took the matter with senior officers of Chandigarh administration and requested to measure the distance of club from Madhya Marg.

On Tuesday, fresh measurement was taken and it was found that the club is beyond 500 metres.

President of the club, Jaswant Rana, said, “We are thankful to the officers for taking fresh measurements and now serving of liquor is allowed at our club,” he said.
