Goa’s rich biodiversity will damage not ecology but Goa’s tourism sector too

Goa: Destruction of Goa’s rich biodiversity will damage not just the ecology but Goa’s tourism sector too, said former Union minister and BJP Rajya Sabha MP Suresh Prabhu. Prabhu’s statement amidst the ongoing Save Mollem campaign, is sure to raise some eyebrows even though the former commerce minister did not mention any of the three mega infrastructure projects coming up in the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife sanctuary and Mollem National Park.

Prabhu said that Goa’s greenery and cleanliness make it an attraction for foreign tourists. “Why will tourists come if it is not as beautiful as it is? They will come only when the beaches are clean, the greenery is there. Whatever economic activity you do, should not destroy Goa’s biodiversity and beauty,” he said.
