PORVORIM: Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said his government will not give permission to any more offshore casinos.
He was responding to the demands for grants of the Home Department in the Assembly.
The state has six casinos which operate from vessels on the Mandovi River.
Sawant also refuted claims by Leader of Opposition Yuri Alemao that a jetty was coming up along the Chapora River to facilitate the operation of a casino.
Jetties have been built to ferry passengers, Sawant said, and asked the opposition “not to create panic among people”.
