Goa, which is one of the most coveted destinations in the country, is seeing a surge in budget tourists.

The minister said, “We do not want tourists who consume drugs. We do not want tourists who ruin Goa. We do not want tourists who cook food in buses in Goa. We want richest tourists. We want tourists who respect our culture, heritage and Goan-ness. We welcome tourists, but they should enjoy Goa within the limits of culture and tradition.”

The minister emphasised on the fact that Goa does not have any space for drug abusers. The minister said that Goa is against drugs, the government is against it, he is against drugs, and also the Chief Minister is against it.

Goa has opened up for tourism, and has announced resuming of charter flights.
