session.

Cabral was speaking on the sides lines of launching the Kitkat travel break pack, he said there are lots of irregularities taking place during the monsoon tourism season.

Cabral said Goa is attractive during the monsoon and tourists should not swim where there are red flags.

While speaking on the drowning deaths at Calangute, Cabral said Goa’s coastline is vast and it is a tough job to keep an eye on every nook and corner of the beach. He further said that some people get excited by looking at the sea and they go to swim despite signages.

He said, “You cannot stop people from swimming and this incident happened before the life guards arrived for duty at the beach and during odd hours.

He said that it is an unfortunate incident which happened in Calangute on Monday.

He urged tourists to visit the state, enjoy the trip but with care at every step.

He urged Goans to come out with new ideas on how to prevent drowning deaths  in the beaches of the
state.
