Baseless and Misleading statements by environment minister

Goa : Goyant Kollso Naka (GKN) has condemned what it called “baseless and misleading” statements by environment minister  Nilesh cabral on Tuesday defending the three contentious Centre-funded infrastructure projects and asserting that Goa wouldn’t be made a coal hub.“The government is not just making baseless and false statements to mislead people, but also contradicts itself, while revealing its servitude to the coal lobby,” the press note states.

Pointing out that Cabral has not contested any of the documents produced by GKN in evidence of the plans to make Goa a coal hub, GKN said, “in fact, he admits the authenticity of the Sagarmala documents which show that 137 MTPA of coal is planned to be transported through MPT, our rivers, our villages and our forests.“These documents also reveal that the double tracking of the SWR is only for increase in coal transportation. The government is contradicting itself by saying on one hand that they will not allow the coal transportation through Goa to increase, while also insisting on continuing with the illegal construction of the second track, which is purely for coal transportation.
