Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday said that poor people should also stay clean.

Pointing out at the lack of hygiene, created especially by street vendors outside the state's biggest medical facility in Panaji, Parrikar said it costs less to stay clean. 

"Let us be clean and neat. Poor persons should also stay clean. I think it doesn't cost. In fact, it costs less. Simple things can be done. All those things will happen," Parrikar said in Panaji. 

Parrikar was particularly critical of lack of hygiene around the Goa Medical College and Hospital, located near Panaji.
