Haryana CM speaks to Parrikar, objects to TCP Minister's statement

Goa Minister Vijai Sardesai Calls Domestic Tourists 'Scum of Earth', Says Visitors From Haryana, Delhi Undesirable

"I am saying this clearly", Ajgaonkar stated. The north Indian states are responsible for the problems that Goa has today. "The tourists, who come here, should take care of Goa's culture and Goanness, otherwise I will chase them away", he said last evening at the inaugural function of the Food and Cultural Festival, organised by the state tourism department.

"We have to preserve our Goan culture and Goanness", he said. "The people coming from those states actually want to recreate Haryana in Goa", said Sardesai.

Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday called Goa CM Manohar Parrikar to express his strong reservations against the statements made by Goa Town and Country Planning Minister, Vijai Sardesai about north Indians.

"We are dependent on north Indians and this is what they do".

Sardesai defended his statement, saying that he was quoted out of context and that he had been referring to only a "certain section of them, not all" domestic tourists. He said he won't apologise for his remark as he had seen a video of tourist urinating from the bus on busy roads of Goa. They are not bothered about Goa.

Serena ready for comeback at Fed Cup
The anticipation of her return to tennis after the birth of her daughter, Alexis Olympia, was not lost on the local crowd. Williams had told Vogue magazine that she developed several small blood clots in her lungs after her daughter was born.

Accusing the BJP-Goa Foward Party of being "anti-poor" and being unable to digest the prosperity of the middle and lower middle class, he alleged that Parrikar meticulously wound up mining in Goa because it was bringing riches to people in the lower economic strata.

In a video that he posted on Twitter, he said, "I haven't generalised or have been xenophobic. These people have no civic sense".

"People of Goa believe, that a small section of the 6.5 million tourists who have come to Goa have created the biggest nuisance".

Earlier, talking about the narcotics trade in Goa, he said a crackdown on the drug network in the state has been going on and this will continue till drugs are out of sight. Goa, one of most sought-after tourist destinations, is visited by large numbers of worldwide and domestic tourists each year for its white sand beaches, nightlife, places of worship and world heritage architecture. Those tourists are not the top-end tourists.
