Goa to reopen for “wealthy tourists” twitter reacted to this

The tourism minister said Twitter to open for wealthy tourists, Twitter has reactions to this:

Goa, the state that truly depends on tourism, is getting ready to welcome tourists, wherein only selected visitors will be allowed. Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said: “After Lockdown 3, movement along inter-state routes via bus and train as well as by flights should be allowed, but with restrictions, especially because Goa, a COVID-free green zone is flanked on both sides by Karnataka and Maharashtra, with a high incidence of cases.”

Tourism Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar said: “We have to recreate the Goa of the 1960s to kickstart our tourism again. In the 1960s, Goa was beautiful and now in 2020 it is very different from more than 8 million visiting tourists.”

He further added, “What we are trying to do along with experts is to take Goa back to the 1960s. We do not want tourists who consume drugs, cook on our roads, or who create nuisance on beaches. We want good tourists who are wealthy and who can appreciate Goa and its culture.”

He further added: “We have to start off from zero. We are right actually in a minus-zero stage now. Until state-to-state level travel can happen we cannot do anything. I feel only when a vaccine is invented or a cure is developed, that tourism movement will begin to happen in Goa.”

Over the past month, Goa was a corona free state. But Goa’s green zone classification is now under threat as there are seven new COVID cases. Of the seven, five belong to one family: husband and wife, their son and daughter, and a one-year-old granddaughter from a second daughter. They were returning from Sholapur back to their home when they were tested at a north Goa facility. The other two cases are from two different destinations.

well, it looks like our Goa plans are on hold for a long time now.
