Panaji: Amid speculation that the Sunburn Music Festival will be shifted to Mopa, in close vicinity of the Manohar International Airport, this year, Goa Tourism Minister Rohan Khaunte on Sunday asserted that the government will not dance to the tune of the festival organisers.

“Very clear thing… people who are organising music festivals should not start thinking that they can make the government dance to their tune,” he reiterated.
