Union Minister of Tourism KJ Alphons has now spoken about the need to respect local culture and traditions by visiting tourists.
The statement appears to be in view of the bikini clad foreigners roaming about in the town streets.
He said that while in other nations, they are allowed by their culture to walk around like that, there needs to be an understanding as to what should be the dress code as they walk the streets.
Minister Alphons, who had said last year that foreign tourists can eat beef in their own country and then come to India, added that the list of dos for visiting foreigners excluded food.
Clarifying that he is a liberal who believes in the “right of the other person to do what he wants”, Minister Alphons did mention that there is a bottom line.
The code of conduct applies to Indians as well who tend to be a little “noisy”.>
