Khaunte questions CM on Parrikar’s plans to shift off shore casinos

Former Revenue Minister and Independent Porvorim MLA Rohan Khaunte recalled how former CM (late) Manohar Parrikar had planned to convert all the off shore casinos into land casinos by identifying a designated area. Khaunte sought to know the policy of the present Pramod Sawant-led government to shift off shore casinos out of River Mandovi, which was the commitment of Parrikar in the interest of the people. He pointed out that Parrikar had come out with a plan to shift the off shore casinos onshore by identifying a designated area. Khaunte said that Parrikar was supposed to come out with a policy by September 2018, to convert off shore casinos into onshore. “But, unfortunately he fell ill and the policy never took shape,” he stated. 
“Today we are on the other side and hence we want to know from the incumbent CM, the policy for shifting the off shore casinos out of river Mandovi , which was a commitment of Parrikar to his people,” he added. Meanwhile, Sawant, in the Performance Budget for the Home Dept tabled in the House, said the govt collected revenue of Rs 411.11 crore during the last fiscal from various casinos.
