PANJIM: A day after Tourism Department had a presentation on the draft Tourism Policy for Ministers and MLAs; the Congress Legislative party (CLP) has sought additional ten days to express their comments and suggestion on the policy. On Wednesday, only four MLAs from the ruling dispensation had attended the presentation. 

In a letter to director Tourism, Leader of Opposition Chandrakant Kavlekar said that being a very long term policy document on which tourism of the State would progress, Congress MLAs be given more time to study and raise their opinion. 

“Proposed draft tourism policy is very exhaustive and it requires detailed examination on various matters and therefore, it may take more time to study and express our comments,” Kavlekar said. 

“Hence, Congress legislative party members have requested for additional period of atleast ten days to express their opinion, comments, suggestions with regards to the proposed draft tourism policy,” he said. 

The four MLAs- Michael Lobo, Glen Ticlo, Alina Saldanha and Deepak Pawaskar, who attended the presentation, strongly criticized the draft policy pointing at various flaws. They have asked the government to keep on hold the draft policy, prepared by M/s KPMG Advisory Services Pvt Ltd and Tourism and Leisure Advisory Services, Spain.
