Says Courts should step in to take suo moto cognizance

PANJIM: Town and Country Planning (TCP) Minister Vijai Sardesai on Sunday said that public nuisance is prohibited under law and the authorities need to step in and take action on those who create nuisance in the State.

The minister also said that police need to take action on such incidents and even the Courts should step in to take suo moto cognizance.

Sardesai was reacting to the video on social media wherein a domestic tourist was seen urinating from an inter-state bus along the Miramar-Dona Paula road. 

“Public nuisance is prohibited under the law and the authorities need to step in and take action on those who create nuisance in our State, like the incident of someone urinating from the static bus,” Vijai told Herald.

“Police need to take action on such incidents and even the courts should step in to take suo moto cognizance. I was shocked by the video which was sent to me and I think this calls for an immediate action,” he added.

On the merger issue he said, “We are looking at a scenario where we are gobbled up from within and we will have to espouse these sentiments. We are a regional party which is espousing these sentiments and I am not apologetic about it. This is not about xenophobia but this is about speaking for what Goans believe.”

The drive-in tourist culture that has of late severely dented the tourism economy and the State, has, in the recent past seen an almost unbelievable number of people travelling from neighbouring States in their own vehicles giving almost zero economic activity to tourism stakeholders. Buses and vans carrying low-budget tourists also contribute only filth and nuisance, triggering discussions when Goa would achieve its target to encourage high-end tourists.
