Manohar Parrikar warns of heavy fine for public drinking in Goa
Drinking alcohol at public places in Goa will attract heavy fine from August 15, chief minister Manohar Parrikar announced on Monday.
Addressing a gathering after opening the incubation centre at the state-run Economic Development Corporation (EDC) in Panaji, Parrikar said the fine for littering and carrying plastic bags would also go up from the next month.
“There is something called civic responsibility. The footpath which is developed along the river in Panaji city is being used by the people for drinking beer,” he said.
