Advocate J Sai Deepak has argued that the number of liquor shops is very less and a number of people who want it is very large in the country.A tweet by Bar & Bench (retweeted by Sai Deepak) states that social distancing was not being maintained at liquor shops as the margin between the demand and supply of alcohol during the lockdown is huge.

As per the Live Law, the Supreme Court on 7 May 2020 had said that states must consider home delivery options or the indirect sale of liquor during the countrywide lockdown so that measures of physical distancing are not broken. The petitioner’s lawyer, Deepak Sai told the court that physical distancing was a big challenge in liquor vends as there are fewer shops of liquor than there were buyers which were creating a nuisance.
