"Liquor menace is ruining the families and women, who are the real sufferers due to the menace. We want a complete ban on liquor."

"After RTI Act, my next fight will be against liquor and bringing a strong act to prohibit the sale and consumption of liquor," said Hazare, who was here to attend an event organised by a city-based NGO.

The Gandhian said the draft of an act against liquor was almost ready, which will be presented to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

"The CM is also positive about constituting a strong act," he said.

On the occasion, Hazare also sought help from Madhav Godbole, former Union Home Secretary, who was present at the event to extend help in making the draft more stronger.
