Meetings on resumption of mining activities in Delhi

Goa : Two crucial meetings on resumption of mining activities in the state will be held soon in Delhi and are likely to be chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, chief minister Pramod Sawant said on Monday.“We will get an appointment as soon as possible,” Sawant told reporters.The last meeting in Delhi was postponed after minister for coal and mines, Pralhad Joshi tested positive for Covid.Sawant said that a new date has been given to Goa mining people’s front (GMPF) to hear their view point on how to resume mining activities in the state.

On September 30, Sawant met the Prime Minister in Delhi and said that Modi would be meeting with bureaucrats and have another political meeting to discuss and resolve the state’s mining issue.The state had earlier urged the Centre to amend the Goa, Daman and Diu Mining Concessions (Abolition and Declaration as Mining Leases) Act, 1987, to restart mining activities.Sawant said that if the erstwhile Congress government had completed the second renewal process in 2007, the industry wouldn’t have had to grind to a halt.
