After Goa minister Vijai Sardesai called domestic tourists arriving in the state as “scum of the earth”, another Goa minister has threatened to chase tourists away who don’t respect their culture.
Tourism Minister Manohar Azgaonkar said that tourists who don’t respect the Goan culture and the spirit of “Goanness” will no longer be welcome in the coastal state.
“The tourists who come here should take care of Goa’s culture and Goanness, otherwise I will chase them away. I will not listen to anyone. I am saying this clearly,” he said.
He was speaking at the inauguration of the Goa Food and Cultural Festival in Panaji on Friday.
