Says CM has failed to order banning of public drinking and so also cooking in open places

PANJIM: Even after being reprimanded by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar in the past, Dy Speaker Michael Lobo continued his tirade against the CM. On Tuesday the Calangute MLA blamed the Chief Minister for the nuisance on the beach and low-grade tourist arrivals in Goa.

Speaking to the media at the Police Headquarters, Lobo said that during the year-end, tourists were walking with bottles on the head on the beaches. 

“Tourism Department is responsible, but the chief minister is responsible more for nuisance on beaches and low-grade tourist arrivals. I say CM is responsible as he should have brought the necessary orders and he has not done it, despite I reminding him 150 times,” he said.

Explaining further, he said, the CM has to bring orders or notification to ban drinking on the beach and the penalties for this. 

“The tourists are creating nuisance in public areas, footpaths, promenades, parking lots. Lots of them just park their vehicles remove cylinders and start cooking. Are we going to allow this to continue? Is Goa this kind of a tourist destination?” he asked. 

Lobo clarified that he is not saying CM is responsible for nuisance but is responsible to bring the orders and since the orders are not come Goa is getting such tourists. “Who has to be responsible for bringing required orders? Orders are not come so we are all helpless,” he said. 

Lobo said he had spoken to the DGP but the police also need orders from the State. “The chief minister has promised the orders and has forgotten about it, but I am going to bring to his notice till the notification is out,” he stated.

Lobo says tourist now feel that Goa is a liquor, drugs and prostitution destination and in their mind every girl who is there on the beach is available. “They get drunk and do anything as you can carry any amount of bottles on the beach, you can break the bottles on the beach and you can just walk away,” he said.
