    It does not matter how many days they are closed for the year, but three days continuously is too much.

    Very very important information. Economy restructuring needed if holidays are more.

      Good one! Yes, how can they just indiscriminately shut down the only business which feeds the coffers!

    bootleggers would have enjoyed the continuous 3 days leave. However other months do not carry much to their pockets by selling in black on dry days.

      What do you mean Carry? If you buy it the previous day and consume on a dry day at a private place, nobody is going to ask you anything.
