- Manohar Parrikar says he no longer rides scooter fearing accident
- He said Goa will adopt measures to reduce accidents
- Earlier, he was often seen moving around town on a scooter
"People ask me whether I travel on a scooter. I tell them that I don't any more. My mind is filled with work related thoughts and if I ride my scooter while my mind is somewhere else, then I could meet with an accident," Mr Parrikar told a gathering of BJP workers in Canacona yesterday.
Driving home a point of safety at the gathering, Mr Parrikar said that he now avoids riding or travelling pillion on a scooter.
In the past, media reports have often cited that Mr Parrikar was still riding a scooter in Panaji as he went about purchasing things from the local markets.
