On Tuesday, Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy promised to launch a widespread anti-liquor/smoking/drug abuse campaign in the state, said a Congress leader.

However, State party chief V.M.Sudheeran said that the government was not planning to impose prohibition in the state.

After the party's state executive meeting, Mr Sudheeran addressed the media on Tuesday. At that occasion he said

"Chandy assured the meeting that Mr very soon a joint task force comprising of the various key ministries - home, local self government, health, youth welfare, excise and social empowerment -would be set up and if necessary fresh laws will also be enacted to see how this menace can be tackled. The various non-governmental agencies who are involved in this work would also be invited to strengthen the awareness campaign besides the local bodies also will be playing an important role in this campaign," said Mr Sudheeran. As the replay for the speaker.

Speaker emphasised that whatever gains the state has made in several social indicators is being spoilt by the state leading the country in per capital liquor consumption and also widespread use of other forms of intoxication materials.

"In 1996, the then chief minister A.K.Antony went ahead with the bold step of banning arrack and in 2004, Chandy also took steps to see that the number of toddy shops be cut down. All these are the Congress' policy of taking the route of what the Father of the Nation wanted," added Mr Sudheeran.

According to the gross record of 2012-2013, the state recorded a record turnover of Rs.9,300 crore in sales of liquor and beer last fiscal, up from Rs.8,818 crore

Moreover, by Wednesday their will be a finalize decision will put for the new liquor policy of the state
