Why Mr. CM Parrkar fulfill promises given to the goans

that house tax will be waived. Where is Panchyat Minister

gone sleep. Some salcete panchayat not accept checks

only cash. One can realize this how panchayat and

government fooling of goans. I am surprised why we pay

House Tax above that they also charged Electricity tax.

Our own property and own house why we pay these

tax. Pancyahat collect alongwith house Elect tax and then

again pay elect tax. Our own house and property why we

we pay this bloody tax.
