PANAJI: Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar has said he paid "bribe" to get a land document from district administration about 38 years back, citing the incident to explain the need for SMS-based mutation facility.      

The Chief Minister said the incident happened when he was not an MLA and he never got the certified copy of a tenancy order from the office of deputy collector which he wanted.

"I was badly in need of that document. I had decided I would source it from this person only. I did not keep track of how much I must have paid to him," Parsekar said yesterday during a function organised to launch an SMS-based mutation facilitation service in Goa.   

The CM said the incident happened much before he became an MLA. However, he also said that despite running from pillar to post, he never got that document.       

"After that I became MLA. I have not received the order even till date," he said.
