Shivsena wants Govt to restart sand extraction

07 Jan 2019 08:30 PM

Shivsena has extended support to sand extraction business. Shivsena alleged that government is responsible for closure on sand extraction as it has goofed up all the legal procedures.

The problem has cropped up because BJP government gave permission to steel boats, which are not environment-friendly.

Shivsena Goa General Secretary Milind Gawas told media that he approached Mines and Geology department and sand businessmen to find out the reason behind the ban.

He was told that a petition has been filed against them in high court.

And high court has banned sand extraction because law does not permit steel boats to extract sands.

But Captain of Ports gave permission to steel boats.
