Tourism the backbone of Goa’s economy is now in total shambles and doldrums. The inflow of quality tourists has been retreating for varied reasons. The wretched infrastructure, the accident prone roads, erratic water and power supply, stray dogs and cattle, garbage strewn all over has been turning the tourists off.
Besides due to the alarming crime rate with the increasing number of rapes, murders and thefts, Goa has also become a very unsafe destination having now evolved as a gambling, prostitution and narcotics den. Our only solace is that the terrorists have so far not yet landed here.
