Alappuzha beach turning into pile of liquor bottles; Demand for night patrol rises
Alappuzha: The number of visitors in Alappuzha beach is only increasing day by day. Both native and foreign tourists flock to the seaside here every day. But the liquor bottles thrown carelessly all over the sand adversely affect the natural beauty of the place and causes dislike in tourists. Anti-socials and alcoholics seem to camp at the beach during the late hours and pollute the area.
Beer bottles have been piled up in many parts of the beach. The carelessly thrown bottles are likely to break and the glass pieces shatter all over the sand. People who walk on bare foot may get injured after stepping on the glass pieces. Those who arrive with family also find the liquor bottles a menace.
The alcoholics take advantage of improper checking by the tourism police and authorities in the night hours. Lack of light sources in the beach side also encourage anti-social activities here. The tourists have been demanding to clean up the sea side and drive the troublemakers away. Regular night patrolling will be helpful to stop such practices.
