Poor should stay clean: Parrikar

Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday said that poor people should also stay clean.

Pointing out to the lack of hygiene, especially by street vendors hawking outside the state's biggest medical facility here, Parrikar said it costs less to stay clean.

"Let us be clean and neat. Poor persons should also stay clean. I think it doesn't cost. In fact, it costs less. Simple things can be done. All those things will happen," Parrikar said here.

Parrikar's statement came in the wake of hygiene, among street vendors standing outside the state's biggest medical facility.

Parrikar was particularly critical of lack of hygienic around the Goa Medical College and Hospital, located near Panaji.
