Beer Banned in Himachal Pradesh’s Weddings
Sonam Zangpo, the head of the panchayat, said the gram sabha decided in the meeting held on a Sunday to restrict the usage of beer in festivals and weddings to avoid waste expenses in such festivals.
They also discussed restricting the Western culture in weddings and celebrations.
Kunga Bodh, a member of Zila Parishad, said soon, we would decide to restrict the Western culture as we are concerned about our traditional culture, which needs to be preserved.
Also, they discussed running vehicles one-way in a keylong market, beautification and sanitation in the areas, and diverting tourists to other destinations. In addition, constructing the Atal Tunnel under the Rohtang Pass has increased the inflow of keylong.
Previously, Sumara Panchayat in Hangrang Valley in Kinnaur district had restricted Bollywood-type marriages to save culture and money.
