Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today said he did not want to attach much importance to the entry of Sri Ram Sene into the state.
"Why should I give importance to anyone saying anything? Why should I give so much weightage to (Sene chief Pramod) Muttalik?" Parrikar shot back, when asked whether he would accept the invitation to launch the right-wing organisation's
"Am I altu-faltu (good for nothing) person? Is Goa Chief Minister so cheap?" Parrikar said.
"I am still clear that the law and order would not be allowed to be disrupted," Parrikar added.
Muttalik recently revealed plans to expand the organisation from Karnataka to the neighbouring Goa. He had said he would invite Parrikar to inaugurate the first branch.
Ram Sene had become infamous after an attack on a pub in Mangalore in 2009.
