RP 2021 gets a mention but mining conveniently forgotten in Sonia’s speech


While yet another assurance was given on taking up the Special Status for Goa with the Central Government and the current dilemma over the Regional Plan 2021 got assurance that the government will not disappoint the people of Goa; strangely, the All India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi failed to talk about the over Rs 12000 crore illegal mining and its damage done to the environment and health of the people of Goa living in the mining villages..

The president however did mention that the Congress party through its Prime Minister at the helm at the Centre is aware of the environmental issues in Goa, which is why Goa got a special provision in the recent Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) notification aimed at protecting the environment along the beach stretches of the state.

But it appears that she conveniently forgot to touch upon the rampant illegal mining and allegations that have come out in the media on the involvement of the ministers of the Congress-led government in Goa.
