No entry into casinos for Goans from Feb 1: Sawant

Jan 30, 2020 18:25 IST

Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Thursday announced that people of the state will not be allowed entry into the casinos operating in the state starting February 1. Sawant has said that the Commissioner of Goods and Services Tax, who is also the gaming commissioner, will implement the ban. A large number of Goans and several political parties, including the Congress, had been seeking a ban on the casinos in the state, alleging that these establishments were against the local culture and causing financial devastation for families.
