Vasco: Airport Authority of India (AAI) on Monday asked its concerned officials to be more watchful after picture of several passengers sleeping at the departure gate of Goa Airport went viral, giving it a look like a Railway Station.

The picture of several passengers who had arrived in Goa on Sunday night had gone viral in which they were seen sleeping at the departure gate, replicating the usual scene at Railway Station.

Several netizens including ruling Goa Forward Party’s Vice President Durgadas Kamat had tweeted expressing their concern over the way airport was being turned into Railway Station.

“Scene @aaigoaairport. Do we need such cheap tourist in Goa? @aaigoaairport should act on this. We don’t need scum like these to visit Goa. We need quality tourists, who will come, spend and enjoy Goa and its beauty. #BrandGoa cannot be compromised at any cost,” Kamat had tweeted.

Senior Journalist Vibha Verma had tweeted “No, its not a railway station but #Goa’s lone airport. The pic was taken a while ago when a group of tourists were camping just next to departure gate. One of the ladies was even seen spitting out water, unfortunately could not record on mobile camera.”

“Along with their luggage, Their chappals too were at different points around that area. Embbarassing! Time to take @TourismGoa seriously with focus to filter the type of tourists #Goa needs. #Tourism Policy @traveltourismAG,” she had added in another tweet.

Responding to the tweets, Goa Airport Director Gagan Malik said that he has asked concerned officials to be more watchful over such incidents.

“We share your concern. This is one of the kind incident and noted with due concern. The instructions to concerned have been issued to be more watchful and ensure no repeat,” Malik reacted to the tweets.

In yet another tweet, Malik said “Thanks for bringing the matter to notice. The concerned have been directed to note this exceptional situation occurred. Shall be dealt appropriately with no repeats in future.”
