Congress leader from Haryana, Randeep Singh Surjewala, said that Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar should either demand Goa Town and Country Planning Minister Sardesai's resignation or accept that he was "unable to protect the rights of his people" in the northern state.
He also attached a news report on the BJP leader's remarks claiming a majority of the domestic tourists visiting Goa are the "scum of the earth".
Sardesai said it was difficult for a state that was "superior" to the rest of India, vis-a-vis most social indices, to control "irresponsible tourists" coming from other states.
"Those tourists are not the top-end tourists.
They are also the scum of the earth," Sardesai said.
