Benaulim MLA and former Tourism Minister Micky Pacheco has extended support to the public interest litigation filed by Goa Chronicle.com Editor-in-Chief Savio Rodrigues seeking a ban/restrain on releasing the movie anywhere in the world in any form.
Pacheco in a telecon with GoaChronicle.com was firm on his statement that Dum Maro Dum should be banned as it is spoiling the name of Goa. “I don’t mind if they show anything else, but not Goa in a bad light”, he said.
Pacheco, during the ongoing session of the State Legislative Assembly, had tabled a calling attention motion in the House seeking a ban on this film.
He had said the movie will project Goa in a bad light as a land of sleaze where drugs and sex abounds, which he said will be believed by the gullible cine goers as a result of which tourism in the State will suffer.
