PARMAR PAYS DUES TO VU

The Vikram University (VU) has finally managed to collect pending rent from Congress MLA Mahesh Parmar on Saturday. Mahesh Parmar had got the university’s bungalow number E-1 allotted in his name as soon as he became an MLA from Tarana. From October 2019 to April 2022, this bungalow remained with Parmar. For 31 months, Mahesh Parmar neither paid rent of Rs 1500 nor water tax of Rs 120 per month. Eventually, the university got the house vacated but the amount of rent and water tax remained pending. Now that Mahesh Parmar is in the fray from Congress as a mayoral candidate, he immediately deposited Rs 50 thousand 220 on Saturday.
