Panaji: Chief minister Pramod Sawant on Friday warned Vedanta Resources against retrenching the staff due to ongoing crisis on the mining industry.

Sawant told reporters that he had told Vedanta officials not to retrench any staff as efforts are made to resume the mining industry.

“I don’t know who will get the mining leases as the matter is subjudice. But I had told the Vedanta officials not to resort to retrenchment,” the chief minister said.

He said “as and when mining will start, the state government will cooperate with the companies which takes back the retrenched staff.”

“We want the mining to resume in Goa because locals should get employment,” he said.

Sawant was reacting to the media report which had claimed that Vedanta was on the verge of retrenching its staff.

Supreme Court in February 2018 had quashed 88 mining leases bringing to halt, the entire industry affecting around two lakh people.

Mining dependents under the banner of Goa Mining People’s Front have been demanding resumption of the industry.

Recently, participating in an event organised by Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Sawant had claimed that state was losing 25 per cent of its revenue due to closure of mining industry.
