          Goans are fed up with tourism. Goans are not dependent on tourism. The tourist are cheap Europeans, Russians and Israelis. They deal in contrabands. Main driver of Goa economy is NRI Goans, Mining, Liquor and lots of consumption among Goans. All these criminals are out siders. It's time and time again prooven. Please leave us alone and let us Goans celebrate life with good food, music, dance, There is celebration of some kind in Goa any given day. Goa the easy.
