Calangute: Director general of police (DGP) Indradev Shukla has urged all tourism stakeholders to protect the natural beauty of Calangute.
Talking at a function in Calangute, Shukla said, “Wherever you go in the world and talk of Goa, people have heard of Calangute and Candolim. God has given very scenic beauty to Goa and that needs protection. Calangute panchayat, local MLA Michael Lobo and we all have the responsibility to protect our environment and cultural heritage and maintain the name and fame of Calangute,” he said.
He added that tourism also has its negative side.
“When tourism grows, a few illegal activities also come. It is our responsibility to restrain these illegal activities like drugs. There has to be a balance between tourism and these other activities which are going to create harm,” Shukla said.
