PORVORIM: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday told the House that rave parties were not permitted in Goa and the government was not aware of any such parties taking place along the coastal belt. 

Parrikar was replying to a question tabled by Congress Mandrem MLA Dayanand Sopte, who sought to know whether government was aware of rave parties taking place in Morjim, Mandrem, Arambol and Keri coastal areas in Mandrem Constituency

“No, rave parties are not permitted,” Chief Minister said in his reply. “People found playing music beyond permissible time, are being booked under the appropriate provision of law,” he added.

Parrikar informed the State Legislative Assembly that since 2014, 26 cases under NDPS Act and IT(P) Act, 1956 were booked in Mandrem constituency, of which five cases were registered this year itself. 

The Chief Minister said in order to prevent drug activities in the coastal belt, pro-active steps have been taken by the police like zero tolerance policy adopted against drugs trafficking.

“To create a strong deterrent impact against drug activities, the drug-prone areas are kept under continuous surveillance,” Parrikar said. 

Chief Minister also specified that bar, restaurants and shacks along drug-prone belt are subjected to surprise checks.
