MLAs from across the party lines in Goa will meet Union Minister for Mines Narendra Singh Tomar and Union Minister for Shipping Nitin Gadkari and urge them to find out means and ways so that mining operations in the state were not affected due to a recent order of the Supreme Court.
The decision was taken in an all party meeting held at state secretariat at Porvorim near the city.
Speaking to reporters after chairing the meeting at the State Secretariat, Public Works Department (PWD) Sudin Dhavalikar said the delegation would meet the minister in New Delhi on Monday next.
“We will be travelling to Delhi on Monday and we have fixed up appointments with Union Minister of Mines Narendra Singh Tomar and Nitin Gadkari.
We are also hoping to meet the Prime Minister and have asked our South Goa MP Narendra Sawaikar to secure an appointment with the Prime Minister himself,” he said.
