PANAJI: The tourism of sex, drugs and prostitution in Goa is backed by political patronage and is defaming Goa, Delhi Chief Minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal said on Wednesday.

He was speaking at an interaction with small hoteliers and tourism industry stakeholders in the coastal state.

"Tourism in Goa is being defamed because of allegations of sex, drugs and prostitution... It is not being stopped because political parties are backing these things," Kejriwal said. 

It was the second meeting of 'Goa Dialogues', a preparatory process for drafting the Aam Aadmi Party's election manifesto for assembly polls scheduled in early 2017.
