Panaji: The Goa Forward Party (GFP), the alliance partners in the BJP led State government, today said that if casinos are of no benefit to Goans then they should be shut down.

GFP general secretary Mohandas Lolienkar was speaking while responding to media questions on what is party’s stand on the casinos, which has become major poll issue for upcoming Panaji by-elections.

Under impression that large numbers of Goans are employed on casinos, Lolienkar said that ‘sudden shut down of the casinos will lead to unemployment to Goan youths’.

However, when informed that no many Goans are employed on casinos, Lolienkar said “if that is the case, then they should be shut-down”.

“If casinos are of no benefit to Goans then they should be shut down,” he commented.

Earlier speaking, GFP general secretary-organization Prashant Naik said that government needs to come out on a detail casino policy as a whole taking all the coalition partners into confidence. “Decision on casinos has to be a consensus decision,” he commented.
