Speaking in the assembly, Parrikar said that according to the Goa government’s beach shack policy, shacks could not be allotted in the name of international branded chains but in names of individuals.

“We give permissions only to individuals and not to global chains,” Parrikar said.

It is not clear whether the club will be allowed permission to function as a conventional city club, rather than as a beach shack.

The issue of granting permission to Playboy club has triggered a revolt within the BJP.
