Goa Mining Dependants to Meet BJP Chief Amit Shah on Jan 13 Over SC Ban

Panaji: An organisation of mining dependants fighting for the sector’s resumption in Goa Friday
said BJP national president Amit Shah would meet its representatives on January 13 to discuss the issue. The mining industry in Goa came to a standstill in March last year after the Supreme Court quashed 88 leases and
prohibited extraction of fresh iron ore.

Goa Mining People’s Front (GMPF) president Puti Gaonkar told reporters that Union Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu has arranged the meeting with Shah on January 13 in New Delhi.

“Besides Prabhu, Union AYUSH Minister Shripad Naik will be accompanying the GMPF delegation in the meeting with
Shah,” Gaonkar said.

He said Shah’s intervention would be sought to ensure the Central government expeditiously amends mining laws to
allow the sector to restart in Goa.
