Shimoga: Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa on Sunday said that his statement on illegal quarrying or mining has been misunderstood by many people.

“I will not allow illegal quarrying or mining for any reason. Those who want to do quarrying or mining should get a license for it. Doing it illegally will lead to such incidents. I will direct Deputy Commissioners to take strict measures in this direction,” said Yediyurappa.

“I have asked Deputy Commissioners of districts not to allow illegal mining or quarrying…illegal mining shouldn’t be allowed, its not good for anyone. They can submit an application to regularise the illegal mining and continue their activities.We have no objection,” clarified Yediyurappa.

“Every deputy commissioner will do a spot inspection and take appropriate action,” the chief minister added.

At least six people were killed in an explosion at a stone quarry on the outskirts of Shivamogga city on Thursday night.

Yediyurappa on Friday had announced Rs 5 lakh to the families of those deceased and had ordered a high-level probe into the incident.

Three people have been detained in connection with the case.

Later speaking to reporters in Mysuru, the Chief Minister said, mining and quarrying were inevitable for development works like roads and national highway projects, as he hinted about providing an option for regularising those that are illegal.

The statement from Yediyurappa hinting about providing an option for regularising mining and quarrying that are illegal, drew sharp reaction from the Leader of Opposition and Congress leader Siddaramaiah.

He said the statement indicates that the Chief Minister has colluded with the people involved in illegal activities.

“Where is the punishment for illegal activities then..This is a highly condemnable and irresponsible statement…it shows Yediyurappa is supporting illegal acts,” he said.
