Union Minister for AYUSH and BJP’s North Goa MP Shripad Naik wants the Goa government to form a mining corporation rather than auction the mines, if the Centre does not agree to amend the MMDR Act.

He has also said that it was BJP’s mistake to form a government in Goa, when it was in minority.

It was a 'Straightforward' with Shripad Naik after getting elected for the fifth time as North Goa MP and getting berth in the union cabinet.

He told Goa365 that former chief minister Manohar Parrikar had even prepared papers to constitute the government-owned mining corporation.

Shripad was also grilled on the BJP’s attempts to keep the government floating by engineering splits in the Congress and MGP.

According to Shripad, this is happening because BJP made a mistake of forming the government when it did not have number. He had personally opposed it.
