“If I receive memorandum, I will definitely examine it”

GOA: Union environment minister Prakash Javadekar said that he would “study” the objections to the proposed projects at Mollem if he received a memorandum from the people of the state. “If I receive a memorandum, I will definitely examine it,” he said when asked to comment on the opposition to three projects  a high tension line, double-tracking of the railway, and a national highway.

Cabral also said that the government would try to save as many trees as they can. Cabral, along with PWD minister Deepak Prabhu Pauskar, held a meeting at Mollem but it didn’t help resolve the issue. At least 100 teachers from across Goa, in a letter to the National Board for Wildlife (NBW), said that there was no detailed plan for reparation of the social and environmental damage that the three infrastructure projects would cause.

The projects will cut through the Bhagwan Mahavir wildlife sanctuary and Mollem national park. “As teachers from Goa, we ask how we are expected to teach young people about their civic duty to protect Goa’s environment and its rich natural heritage, while it is stolen from them through illegal, unscientific manners. Are we expected to teach them about deforestation, global warming, and climate change, without bringing contemplation and thought to how we can do better, and how we can help to change these patterns?” the teachers had said.
