Beer statement twisted, expressed worry not fear: CM

Beer statement twisted, expressed worry not fear: CM

Taking strong objection to the statements, Chodankar said that the neo-rich elites and the bhatkar mentality of the government was working overtime to deprive earnings of poor people who are depending on domestic tourists. He said Sardesai was referring to an incident of a tourist urinating from a bus window, the video of which had gone viral. However, Parrikar also said Sardesai was not wrong in highlighting the issue but that he interpreted it in an incorrect way.

In reference to Sardesai's comment, CM Parrikar said, "He (Sardesai) asked me a question whether it will impact (the tourist flow)".

The Goa Chief Minister also expressed confidence that Sardesai's comment would not impact tourism in the coastal state, adding that although the choice of words used by Sardesai was harsh, he did not intend to incite violence and that basic social etiquettes applied to locals as well. "Sometimes, if a report is filed by a journalist who was not present at the event, there is a possibility of dilution or modification of the statement". This, the government had said, was to cut down on the load on government-run facilities like the Goa Medical College and Hospital. Are they responsible? They are not. "Those people - how will you control?" the Minister had said.

He had also stated that north Indian tourists want to create a Haryana in Goa. Parrikar's statement comes a few days after he was trolled on social media for expressing his concern over women consuming alcohol. Meanwhile, Manohar Parrikar caught himself in controversy after he said that he was anxious that girls are consuming liquor nowadays.
