The number of revellers is increasing with a great height. Last year the figure marked was 1 lac. Yes 1 lac revellers has attended this event. Now let’s see this year what will be the number.
There are many issues and controversies during this fiesta, because maximum number of crowd is western and they enjoy this party in their western culture that includes less clothing, smoking, drinking and drugs that leads to a very weird and worst atmosphere, which spoils the name of our nation. There is so much chaos and confusion caused by traffic on the roads. Goa is already a crowded area and on top of this more five thousand visitors come here and increase the problems. It is indeed an enjoyable occasion but it should have certain norms. This year our government have made some rules that should be followed by the organisers such as this festive should remain free of drugs. No smoking allowed at the venue. Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has strictly stated that this event should be “in principle”. Police securities will be on high alert in order to avoid intake of drugs during the occasion.
Don’t forget that only few days are remaining for this festive, so get ready to go and enjoy with full enthusiasm.
