Mining dependents have made a fresh allegation against the BJP government.

According to them, Goa’s advocate general is in favour of auction of mines.


Therefore they want some other senior lawyer to represent Goa in the Supreme Court.


And to demand this, they have a planned a rally in Panaji on 14th of March.


Mining dependents want amendment to the MMDR Act so that same lease holders continue mining in Goa.


But they fear that Goa’s AG would suggest to the court to auction the mines afresh.


By holding a rally from Azad Maidan in Panaji to the Secretariat in Porvorim, the Goa Mining People’s Front would submit a memorandum to the Chief Secretary to change the lawyer in the Supreme Court.
