Panaji, Jul 6: Internationally acclaimed pop singer Remo Fernandes has expressed his reservations over vote for Taj campaign smelling it as a ploy by cellular companies.

"It's a rip off.. How can anyone enter into the list of wonders of world by voting on Smes,'' the singer, who recently is honoured with Padmashree title, questioned.

"I have a doubt that it could be a ploy of cellular companies to mint money... who knows?,'' Remo questioned talking to PTI.

The singer said that there cannot be such a polling. ``None of my friends from abroad knows about such a polling to get their monument listed in the seven wonders. How can India itself vote and decide? It at all there was a polling for the seven wonders, it would have been on a global level,'' he said.

Remo said that `wonders' should be judged by experts, historians, architects, artists and other related people. ``Only because you have access to the mobile does not mean that you can judge,'' he said.

The singer, who has several hits under his belt including Hamma Hamma in the film BOmbay and latest Pyar Ka Signal from Bhagam Bhag in bollywood besides various albums, feels that such a judgement criteria is unfair.

"If that is a criteria big nations like India will win while small ones like Sri Lanka will lose because of its population strength.... The nations like America will always lead because most of thke people there carry cells,'' he reasoned.

The singer said that the Indian government should probe into entire episode and find out whether it's a ploy by mobile companies to make money by fooling their subscribers.
