Next government will solve Goa’s mining issue: Suresh Prabhu
Union Minister Suresh Prabhu assured people of Goa that the “next government” will definitely solve state’s vexed mining issue for the sake of the social cost of those affected by the shutdown.
Prabhu, who is in the coastal state for a series of campaign meetings said, he couldn’t promise “what the solution could be.”
“I will not tell you today, on the eve of the election what could be the solution. But the new government will definitely work towards to finding an enduring solution to the problem, purely the social aspect of it taking into account the miseries the people are suffering,” Prabhu said.
“Mining can be done in a manner that does not compromise with the environment. Most important for me is the social cost that people dependent on mining had to suffer innumerable miseries. Therefore, we are committed to that the solution can be legal, can be administrative, can be legislative. We will look into all possible aspects. The new government, working with the local government,” he added.
