Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has said that he did not support the pub culture,but it was not an issue that was worth the fuss.

“It’s not that I support pub culture. But we need to pay more attention to security and other important issues,” Chavan said in Mumbai when asked to comment on Mangalore incident.

He assured that if any organisation tries to attack pubs in the state,”police will take care of it”.

He stated that in the wake of recent terror attacks,”security was more important than pubs or dance-bars”.

The previous government of Vilasrao Deshmukh had come under flak for its decision to ban dance bars in Mumbai.

Chavan was talking to reporters during a function organised to hand-over documents related to petrol pumps’ dealership to the family members of policemen and NSG commandos who died fighting terrorists in Mumbai.

The function was held at the official Sahyadri guest house.
