"I have called for a meeting of all the MLAs from the mining belt tomorrow to understand the impact and also discuss the situation", he said. Last week, the Goa Chief Minister during an interaction with students had said: "I have begun to fear now, because even the girls have started drinking beer".

Addressing the gathering at the foundation stone laying ceremony of the Super Specialty block, Parrikar thanked the Prime Minister, Union Shipping and Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan and Health Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda for sanctioning projects worth Rs 25,000 crore to Goa.

In reference to Sardesai's comment, CM Parrikar said, "He (Sardesai) asked me a question whether it will impact (the tourist flow)".

Touching upon the issue of formation of the state mining corporation, Parrikar, who also holds the mining and geology portfolio, said the particular proposal can not be viable for the government as it would invite multiple problems. "I will prefer to have a good and responsible tourist from any place in the world", Parrikar added.

Mr Parrikar also said his remarks were not an expression of fear, but a worry.

As per the order, all ore extraction activity on the renewed leases should cease by March 15.Goa is the country's leading exporter of low-grade iron ore and exported almost 50 million tonnes before the Shah Commission in 2012 exposed a INR 35,000-crore scam, implicating almost all major mining industrial houses along with then Congress Chief Minister Digambar Kamat and key bureaucrats.

He also said that politicians needed to be careful while making statements, referring to his cabinet colleague, Vijai Sardesai, who had dubbed a section of domestic tourists visiting the coastal state as the "scum of the earth".

Sardesai is the president of the Goa Forward Party which is part of the BJP government in Goa. "Today, we receive tourists who are nearly six times the state's population". If you compare Goans to rest of India, we are high in per capita income, social and political consciousness, we are much superior than people who are coming in. "Those people - how will you control?" the Minister had said. "Can you control them?"
