Advocate ashwini Kumar Upadhyay filed this petition. government should be ordered to print stickers on liquor bottles just like stickers are placed on cigarette packets saying they are harmful to health.
Appointed to the supreme Court. He appealed to conduct a campaign through print, electronic and social media. He emphasized that alcohol is injurious to health and that putting up stickers will help the youth to know about it. The bench headed by CJI Justice YU Lalit, which examined the petition, made key comments. It said that some people believe that alcohol is good for health if consumed in moderation. But she reminded me that no one said this in the case of cigarettes. Therefore, it concluded that stickers cannot be ordered on the ammunition bottles.
