Speaking to GoaChronicle.com on a telephonic conversation, Arti Mehra, national secretary – Goa In-Charge, said, “We have already sent our report to the CBI and Central Vigilance Commission, we are awaiting the replies from them. In the meantime the Shah Commission report too will be out. Taking all developments into considerations we will formulate of next strategy, but we will not relent on the illegal mining issue.”
On the toning down of the BJP Goa stance on the issue, Mehra, stated to the best of my knowledge whether BJP Goa or the High Command we work on a common agenda for the party benefit. Rival parties are trying to create this disarray about problems between local outfit and high command. But we are working to a plan and we will get the results soon.
