Panaji: River Navigation Department minister Subhash Phal Desai is in the dock over his decision to levy fees for the two-wheelers.
AAP Goa chief Amit Palekar has demanded immediate recall of the fees.
Palekar wrote on “X” “We @AAPGoa demand immediate roll back of the fees for commuters to be levied on Ferry Services @SubhashGoa and @DrPramodPSawant. Instead of connecting islands by building bridges you are increasing fees on ferry services is not fair for to Goans. Build better infra without corruption and make ferry services absolutely free.”
