More on the Goa Flying circus

 They must have flown to Dilli many more times than you went to the Kesarval spring for that special bath or to Baga for that matter on a picnic in a lifetime of trying to do so amidst your busy schedules and trying to make two ends meet.  Certainly there is ample evidence of that.  Some politicians might have achieved that in a year of flying to the capital on missions where they are only looking for mercy themselves.  They certainly flew so fast and furiously to be on name-knowing terms with most airline crews!

Nyet?

That makes it a grand total (see below) of Rs 56,52,327 culled from records I have and does not include the clever ruse MLA’s use these days, of getting government corporations, like the Goa Tourism Development Corporation which is developing itself more into a freebie flying club than it is developing tourism, to foot their travel and living bills.  Expect the total to fly fast and furious.
