Online Lotto Shunned
By Earl
The Times of India reports that after hearing complaints from citizens in Karnataka that the state’s online lottery is ruining families, Chief Minister S.M. Krishna urged the people to shun it. But the minister has “categorically ruled out its ban.”

“To counter online lottery becoming addictive, the Karnataka government will strengthen its much acclaimed Stree Shakti [self-help groups] movement, so that women can have a major say against such spending,” Krishna said. “But the government could not ban the lottery, since it is well within the purview of law. Even if we ban, states such as Nagaland and Sikkim, who run online lotteries, will bring stay orders, thereby defeating the exercise ... The only solution is education and regulation, and the government is committed to doing both where online lottery is concerned,” the minister added.
