Calangute: Former minister and Congress candidate Michael Lobo on Sunday questioned why transport minister Mauvin Godinho is silent about hiring outstation taxis with no fare-meter by the Election Commission (EC) in Goa. “Despite being transport minister Godinho has not said a word about outside taxis which have been brought by the Election Commission into Goa. How can the EC bring taxis without meters? The rule is that only taxis with meters can operate in Goa,” he said. He alleged that there is a scam in fitting digital taxi meters on cabs in Goa. “The taxi meters which have been fixed are a big scam by Godinho. Meters costing Rs4,990 have been given to taxi owners for Rs11,300. To clean this scam it is necessary to vote him out,” Lobo told reporters on Sunday.
