Bengaluru: Bengaluru city will go dry for three days, owing to the election to the Legislative Council.

The Bengaluru city police has announced that liquor stores will be closed from 6pm on Monday to 6pm Wednesday.

The district administration has banned supply and sale of liquor in the entire district, including the suburban areas, 48 hours prior to the closing of the polls.

Some bar owners complained that they received the information on the order only around 4pm, which led to inconvenience as they had to cancel reservations at the last minute.

The election to the Bangalore Teachers Constituency is set to be held from 8am to 5pm on Wednesday. This constituency consists of Bengaluru Urban, Bengaluru Rural and Ramanagara districts.

The order said the liquor shops should be closed on the above days in all the police station limits under the jurisdiction of the Bengaluru commissioner.
