Tourists come in groups in jeeps and buses, stroll around the beach area and drink alcohol and cook in their vehicles, before littering in the open in the village. They do not make any hotel reservations. So there is a need for imposing a stringent fine on tourists but we cannot stop them from travelling to any state of Goa because that will deny their fundamental righ to movement ” said lobo
Lobo also welcomed the decision of the the calangute Panchayat’s resolution to impose tax on tourists ‘coming in jeeps, drink alcohol, litter adding that this was a good move by the panchayat
many tourists go on the beach to spend the whole day and use public toilets and park their vehicles in the parking place or in the open area. They drink alcohol and throw bottles and garbage anywhere and go away. Hence, the panchayat resolved to identify such places to identify these tourists and to request police for immediate necessary action to stop such activities” I welcome this resolution informed lobo ,
