Goa Government To Consider BJP’s Call To Ban Offshore Casinos

Offshore casinos are amongst one of the key issues which have been addressed by representatives of all parties contesting the Panaji bypoll. With BJP state unit president, Vinay Tendulkar, calling for a complete ban on offshore casinos in the state the issue has resurfaced.

Earlier this week, the Goa state unit president had requested the coalition government in the state to ban offshore casinos once their licenses expire.

Responding to Tendulkar’s request, Goa Chief Minister, Pramod Sawant said that their government would consider the proposal to shut down offshore casinos.

“They have sent me a proposal. The government will consider it and then take a decision… I have not read the proposal in detail yet,” Sawant said while speaking to journalists at a press conference held at the BJP state headquarters in Panaji on Wednesday.

All parties including the Congress, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Goa Suraksha Manch have promised to shut down offshore casinos.

While BJP has been accused of not delivering on its poll promises as it had sworn into power demanding closure of offshore casinos, it’s current stand seems to be an attempt to play to the popular demand of the residents.

BJP, when in opposition rose to power demanding a ban on offshore casinos, however, it repeatedly failed to deliver on its promises when in power.
