CM Manohar Parrikar warns of heavy fine on public drinking

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar warned that if anyone is found drinking in public from the month of August there will be a heavy fine on it. He also said that littering will also cost heavy fine. "Mind you, there will be a heavy fine if you are found drinking (in public) from the month of August. We're issuing a notification very soon. I intend to do it before August, so that we can implement it from Aug 15. Same way littering will also have a heavy fine of Rs 2,500. Littering and throwing garbage can be very costly. That is the only way that we can bring the importance of public responsibility to focal point." He said.
