"In order to pay homage and respect to the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi, the Goa government will observe a dry day on October 2," the order stated.
"All the casino licensees are directed by the Department of Home to stop the operations of the casinos in Goa on October 2, from 12 am for 24 hours," the order added.
