CM Manohar Parrikar 'Welcomes All' To Goa, With One Condition

CM Manohar Parrikar 'Welcomes All' To Goa, With One Condition

I do not think it will impact. "Parrikar said he had only expressed 'worry" and not 'fear, ' adding that his comment was misrepresented. He also said that politicians needed to be careful while making statements, referring to his cabinet colleague, Vijai Sardesai, who had dubbed a section of domestic tourists visiting the coastal state as the "scum of the earth".

Parrikar said the judiciary should take into account that it is impossible for governments to disrupt their state's economic trajectory all of a sudden, IANS reported. "I will prefer to have a good and responsible tourist from any place in the world", Parrikar added.

"He should not have used very harsh words", Parrikar told PTI.

The Chief Minister said that basic social etiquettes applied to the locals as well.




Taking strong objection to the statements, Chodankar said that the neo-rich elites and the bhatkar mentality of the government was working overtime to deprive earnings of poor people who are depending on domestic tourists.

Calling Goa a state "superior" to the rest of India, Sardesai had said it is hard to control "irresponsible tourists" who have been coming from other states. "Today, we receive tourists who are nearly six times the state's population".

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today said that the governments decision to charge patients from outside the state at state-run hospitals had resulted in a drop of only four to five per cent in the number of such patients. Those tourists are not top-end tourists, they are also the scum of the earth. "Those people - how will you control?" the Minister had said.
