Goa Chief Minister and Opposition leader united against tobacco
Goa was the first state to ban Gutka and Pan Masala. Goa has always been a leader in the tobacco control movement in India. In a gesture rarely seen in India, Shri Digambar Kamat,Honble Chief Minister of Goa and Shri Manohar Parrikar, Honble Leader of Opposition signed a joint appeal to make Educational Institutions of Goa completely tobacco free. This sends out a signal to other political leaders of India and motivates them to forget political differences to safeguard of nation’s health. We congratulate Dr Shekhar Salkar, Cancer Surgeon at Manipal Hospital for making this unique feat happen.
