After liquor shops were allowed to open in India with certain restrictions, the Delhi government announced a 70 per cent “Special Corona fee” to be imposed on the Maximum Retail Price (MRP) of the alcohol. Since the new rule is reportedly applicable from May 5, it has also flooded social media with memes about its reactions ranging from that of shop owners to the ones who were waiting in long queues to get alcohol after over 40 days. Delhi has apparently allowed at least 150 state-run alcohol shops outside the containment zones of coronavirus.
