PTI, PANAJI | 08 April 2013 21:20 IST

Calangute MLA Micahel Lobo has threatened to go on a hunger strike if Goa government grants permission to US-based Playboy Club to open a branch in the state.

"I am opposing this club anywhere in Goa. The department of tourism has already made up its mind to give them no-objection certificate," said ruling BJP MLA Lobo.

The club is proposed to be set up in his constituency of Calangute, Goa' hot bed of tourism.

Lobo, who heads BJP's North District unit, threatened to go on a hunger strike if permission is granted to the Playboy Club to enter the state.

He claimed that chief minister Manohar Parrikar had assured that such a club would not be allowed in the state.

Earlier in the day, tourism minister Dilip Parulekar told the Goa Legislative Assembly that the proposal of Playboy's Indian franchisee to set up a club at Candolim beach was under consideration.

He, however, later told reporters that the club would not be allowed if it indulged in vulgarity.
