In Goa, four MLAs of the ruling bloc found flaws in the Tourism Master Plan and Policy at a meeting called yesterday by Tourism Minister Manohar Azgaonkar for discussing the proposed policy document.


The MLAs requested that the implementation of the draft tourism master plan and policy devised by a consortium of KPMG Advisory Services Private Limited and Tourism & Leisure (T&L) Advisory Services, Spain be kept on hold until several flaws in the tourism sector are attended to.


BJP MLAs Michael Lobo, Glen Ticlo, Alina Saldanha and MGP’s Deepak Pawaskar pointed out flaws in the draft and asked Azgaonkar to call for another meeting of MLAs, stakeholders, architects and environmentalists.


“The draft policy essentially speaks about how Goa can be made into Singapore. Goa is a state and not a country that such a thought process is put into the draft. The basic issues on tackling existing problems are not mentioned. How can such a draft be implemented? I have requested the Tourism Minister to call for a meeting of all stakeholders until which it should be kept on hold,” said the Deputy Speaker.
