" Muthalik had called for a crackdown on what he called pub culture in Goa, which is known as the night-life capital in the country."
Panaji, July 30 - Sri Rama Sene will not be allowed to set up a branch in the state, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar told the Goa legislative assembly Wednesday.

Parrikar said this in a written reply tabled Wednesday in response to a question by ruling Bharatiya Janata Party legislator Vishnu Wagh.

The chief minister also said that no concrete evidence was found to prove that Muthalik was attempting to create a communal divide in the state.

The issue of the Sene, known for ransacking a pub in Mangalore and attacking young men and women there, starting a branch in Goa has been heavily debated by politicians as well as civil society here.

Muthalik had called for a crackdown on what he called pub culture in Goa, which is known as the night-life capital in the country.

Muthalik had also said that he would distribute swords and Bhagwad Gitas to Hindus, exhorting them to use the weapon if needed.
