So, apparently no alcohol can be served till the last vote is counted. And the people of the country aren't very happy with this development since alcohol is the one true way for people to celebrate their victories or drown in their sorrows.
People are expressing their many emotions on Twitter about 23rd May 2019 being a dry day.
Today’s a dry day because if it wasn’t, a lot of us would drink up our sorrows in the form of alcohol and then all the alcohol would actually run dry— Priyanka Paul (@artwhoring) May 23, 2019
divided by politics, united by dry day— Shilpa Rathnam (@shilparathnam) May 23, 2019

So .. the Indian Gov't has declared Thursday 23 May a "dry day” for some reason or another. Sale of alcohol is banned until sundown.— Richard Lord (@richardlord) May 22, 2019
I'm in an airport lounge, after midnight, with 1 hour to boarding & I think this is a crime against humanity.
It is ...a crime against humanity!
Which genius decided to make counting day a dry day? Aaj to dono khemo ko jarurat hai! #ElectionResults2019— Sid G (@SiddyBwuay) May 23, 2019

EC directive to declare May 23 as Dry Day is hilarious! Do Indians engage in mass drinking all over to express joy or sorrow? If some do what is the police for! And does it influence election outcome! Why not focus on dead people on voters list and EVMs— Yashovardhan Azad (@yashoazad) May 22, 2019
Should have seen the writing on the wall and stocked up.— Viv Pererra (@vivwayne) May 23, 2019
Only for people who can’t drink at home.— 21st Century Depressive Man-Child (@ankitsoni) May 23, 2019

These kinda results and a dry day. Fcuk!— Secular Fringe (@melwynm) May 23, 2019
There maybe a logical explanation to it. They don’t want to deal with unnecessary nuisance like bar fights, drunk driving etc. when all the police force and govt. officials are busy in election duties. Modis got nothing to do with it dude. Think. Must be same in all elections.— Gulczar (@muziikman) May 23, 2019
Should've stocked up.
