Fatorda: Goa Forward Party Chief and Goa’s Deputy Chief Minister Vijai Sardesai on Wednesday propagated the concept of Shack in the agricultural fields as a method to encourage agro-tourism in the State.
Sardesai, who is also State Agriculture minister, said that the attempts are being made to create a sustainable model for agro-tourism in the State, which is largely dependent on its beaches to attract footfalls.
“I am trying to intentionally do few things which I have talked about vehemently. I am trying to create a model of agro tourism. If we can have shack on the beach then why not shack in the agricultural field,” Sardesai said talking to reporters after inaugurating eight day long Summer Agricultural Camp for students organised by his own initiative and a non-profit organization ‘We for Fatorda.”
“I am trying to create one (shack in the field) here (Fatorda), I will give to the women of Fatorda so as to show that we practice what we preach,” he added.
Sardesai supported eco-tourism projects including seven star properties in the State.
“We want to divert tourists into rich natural heritage which we see in the hinterland, forest of Goa. It is a new experience about Goa,” he said.
