North Goa MP blames ‘negligence’ for crisis
While the schedule of Shah’s visit is still awaited, Sawant said he will hold a discussion with Shah on the mining resumption issue. "There will be detailed discussion on mining. What exactly I can't tell but it is for immediate resumption of the activities in the State," he said.
Shah had last month spearheaded yet another joint attempt of the Centre and the Goa government for restarting the mining activity in Goa. He had chaired a high-level meeting, which was attended by five Union Ministers: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Mines Minister Prahlad Joshi, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Railway and Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal and Petroleum and Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. Sawant, Chief Secretary Parimal Rai, Mines Secretary Daulat Hawaldar amongst others were also present. Shah had then directed Union Mines Ministry to revisit the entire issue and submit report within eight days. A follow up meeting on the issue is expected now when Shah will be in Goa.
