Amit Shah Assures Of Early Resumption Of Mining In Goa

Members of the Goa Mining People’s Front, a collective of workers, truck and barge operators dependent on the now-banned iron ore mining industry, on Sunday met BJP national President Amit Shah, to lobby for resumption of mining in the coastal state which has been banned by the apex court since February last year.

In a statement released to the media after meeting Shah in the national capital, the Front said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief has said that a “solution to the present mining impasse shall be brought about soon by the Central government”.

South Goa MP Narendra Savoikar, who was also present at the meeting with Shah, said that the delay in finding a resolution to the mining crisis is because the Central government is considering all legal aspects of the cases.
