Panaji, Feb 4: A senior Congress leader on Thursday, Feb 4 said foreigners should not be allowed to indulge in commercial activities along Goa's coastal belt, claiming that they don't follow the rules and regulations.
"(Foreigners including) Russians and Israelis are illegally holding business activity in the (state's) coastal belt, particularly in the constituency of the state Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar," Rajya Sabha MP from Goa Shantaram Naik said.
He said the foreigners arrive on Tourist Visa but blatantly violate the rules and that they should not be allowed to indulge in any commercial activity.
Naik alleged that the state government has failed to take any concrete steps to curb these "illegal" businesses.
"Some important people in the government are sheltering these foreigners involved in illegalities," he said.
