No menus in Russian language

Menus written only in the Russian Cyrillic script could be off restaurant tables along with foreign language signage if Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has his way.

Parrikar was responding to a query from Congress legislator Mauvin Godinho in the assembly on Monday.

Godinho wanted action against “exclusive” enclaves allegedly set up by Russians and Israeli who visit Goa for long durations or have been in the state for a long time.

“I have also heard about them. Enclaves won’t be tolerated, where there is no use of local language. Hotels catering to a (certain) class of people will not be entertained. Next season if someone does that, he will not get trade licenses,” Parrikar said.

Certain coastal areas in Goa, especially near the Morjim, Arambol, Calangute and Anjuna belt, have been in the news for allegedly hosting small exclusive commercial hubs which other nationals or even locals are discouraged from patronizing.
