Panaji, Jun 12: While returning from his village Sankhalim in North Goa to Panaji, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Tuesday saw a man throwing nirmalya flowers (floral offering made to God) in a river from a bridge near Panaji. As soon as he witnessed the act he stopped by and rebuked the man for disposing flowers in the river.

The incident happened in the morning in North Goa when Mr Sawant's vehicle was heading towards the state capital from his village.

In a video released by the chief minister on his Twitter account, he is seen telling the villager, "Don't do this. At least don't do it again."

“Earlier today, while travelling over Gaundalim bridge, came across a citizen who was disposing nirmalya (floral offering made to God) in the river. I requested him to desist from doing so. As responsible citizens, we need to begin disposing waste properly and also educate and guide our fellow citizens to do so," Mr Sawant tweeted.
