Government is not creating infrastructure for the coal industry

Goa: Even as opposition to coal transportation and major infrastructure projects increases across the state, chief minister Pramod Sawant said on Sunday that the state government is not creating infrastructure for the coal industry.Sawant, who was speaking at the foundation stone ceremony for the construction of the Konkan maritime cluster at Verna industrial estate, urged locals and activists not to launch agitations against coal.“There is a wrong mindset among many that Goan ports are only for coal business, which needs to be changed,” said Sawant.

Goencho Ekvott, Goyant Kolso Naka and Goencho Avaaz have launched multiple agitations across the state against coal transportation, coal handling at Mormugao Port Trust and against South Western Railway’s double tracking project.Sawant said that development of Goa’s ports and other infrastructure is to facilitate exports, trade and shipment of manufactured goods from Goa’s industries.

The chief minister also said that Goa has a lot of scope to become a maritime and logistics destination as it has the capabilities and skilled manpower required to efficiently use waterways and ports for different kinds of industries.Sawant said that the use of waterways for Goa’s tourism industry can benefit the state, as it could improve connectivity with Goa International Airport at Dabolim. He said that the state government is planning to develop a connectivity through public private partnership.
