Goa wants rich tourists, not ones who cook food on a bus: State Tourism Minister

When asked about the post-pandemic revival of the tourism industry in Goa, the Tourism Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar on Tuesday said, “We don’t want tourists who consume drugs and who spoil Goa. We don’t want tourists who come to Goa and cook food on a bus. We want the richest tourists.”
