Former Goa CM Ravi Naik wants Nigerians to ‘leave India’

Panajim(ANI): After Goa CM Laxmikant Parsekar courted controversy with his comments about Nigerians last week, former Goa CM Ravi Naik on Tuesday kicked another row with his comments.

“The Nigerians come here in Delhi, in Bengaluru and do ‘dadagiri’ in the entire country. The Nigerians should be asked to leave from India, we don’t want Nigerian tourists. The Government of India should ban Nigerians from entering India,” Naik told ANI.

“If they have come to study here, a watch should be kept on them to see whether they really study and go to colleges. They don’t study ‘rather they indulge in illegal activities’, he added.

CM Parsekar last Wednesday had said that Goans are not happy with the behaviour of Nigerians.

“People of Goa are not happy with Nigerians. Goans, in general, are complaining about these foreigners, we get people from all other countries, but in general, people of Goa are really annoyed with their behaviour, attitude,” Parsekar had said.

Last month there was a series of alleged attacks on African nationals in the country, in the middle of which Parsekar made such comments.

Over a dozen African nationals were attacked in Rajpkhurd village of Chhatarpur, South Delhi in May.

Four men and two women have been injured in the attacks and are admitted in hospital. The Delhi Police on Friday registered four FIRs in the case. All four complainants, in their 30s, have been residing in Delhi for past few years, police said.
