Panaji: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Saturday met Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Union Mines minister Pralhad Joshi over the issue of resumption of Iron Ore mining in the State.

Sawant is currently in the national capital with several official meetings lined up on Saturday.

In a statement issued, the Chief Minister said that he met Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Union Mines minister Pralhad Joshi and Minister for Petroleum and Steel Dharmendra Pradhan on the issue of resumption of Goa Mining.

Sawant said that during the meeting Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and State Advocate General Devidas Pangam were also present.

“We are hopeful that some solution will be found out in the further deliberation with the central government that will take place immediately,” the chief minister said.

The Iron Ore mining in the state has come to standstill since 2018 after Supreme Court quashed 88 mining leases. The state government has already filed petition before the Apex Court for resumption of the mining while it is also trying for legislative cure to solve the issue.
