BJP, Cong against plan to open Playboy Club in Goa

The BJP Goa unit has decided to stand by its legislator who has opposed Playboy Club’s plan to open a branch at Candolim beach which has been under consideration of the state tourism ministry.

Even the state Congress unit has also expressed its reservations over opening of such a facility in the state.

‘The BJP does not approve of having Playboy Club in Goa and we will take up the issue with the state government,’ party’s Goa unit spokesman Wilfred Mesquita told reporters here on Wednesday.

The state BJP-led government is considering the proposal by the US-based club’s franchisee to open its branch in Goa.

BJP legislator Michael Lobo has threatened to go on a hunger strike if the club is given permission, claiming that it would encourage vulgar tourism in the state.
