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.”

Goa is considered to be the country’s most popular tourist destination.

“We welcome all tourists but they should enjoy themselves while respecting Goa’s culture,” he added. The minister said the BJP-led government in Goa is “completely against drugs”.

The Goa Assembly on January 31, 2019, amended the state tourism law, prohibiting cooking and drinking alcohol in public places. Open cooking and drinking on beaches and breaking glass bottles in public was made a criminal offence with fines of Rs 2,000.

The stuffing is versatile and can be spiced and enhanced with other ingredients, such as sauteed aromatics (onion, celery, garlic), dried fruit, nuts, cheese
