Chief Minister Parrikar also warned that littering the state with beer bottles would also attract a steeper fine.

“Same way littering will also have a heavy fine of Rs 2,500. I have caught two-three college students going there with beer bottles. This is not done,” Parrikar said.

He further said that bottles thrown on the rocks along the riverfront were putting other people at risk.

Earlier this year, the Chief Minister sparked controversy after he, during an interaction with students, had chided girls for drinking beer.
