We will make tourism pie bigger: Goa CM


Seeking to allay the fears of tourism stakeholders from South Goa that their business prospects would be hampered post-Mopa, chief minister Manohar Parrikar on Thursday said that Mopa airport would serve in making the tourism pie bigger that will benefit all stakeholders from across the state.

“They keep fighting over a small pie of tourism. We are making the pie bigger,” Parrikar said, reports Times of India.

Addressing mediapersons after inaugurating the South Goa district office of the directorate of agriculture, Parrikar sought to suggest that those fears were unfounded as the “fast corridor” would connect the old airport with the new one and with hotels in South Goa.

The chief minister further expressed his willingness to come on an “open platform” over the Mopa airport issue, once all the facts about the project are presented by him to the public in November.
