Speaking exclusively to GoaChronicle.com via a telephonic conversation, Javed Raza, National Secretary and Goa In-Charge said that illegal mining in Goa is a shame on the Congress government, who have allowed this crime on the people of Goa to continue for many years. If the estimated illegal iron-ore extracted is over Rs 8000 crore, it is shocking to note the irregularities that have gone unnoticed by the Minister for Mines and the mining department. A CBI inquiry is a must and the CM must be asked resign.
JD (U) incidentally is the only political party that spoke about the police atrocities on the Cauvrem village and the tribal youth leader Nilesh Gaonkar attack, which the police have not been able to solve yet.
Raza further added, mining is Goa is destroying the environment and this rampant illegal mining which has gone unchecked must be stopped in the interest of the people and environment.
