Porvorim:  The Congress party in Goa on Wednesday filed formal complaint with the State Chief Secretary and Director General of Police against Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, his predecessor Laxmikant Parsekar and three senior officers in connection with the renewal of the mining leases, which were quashed by the Supreme Court later.

Goa Pradesh Congress Committee President Girish Chodankar and Leader of Opposition Chandrakant Kavlekar has filed a formal complaint against Parrikar, Parsekar, former State Mines Secretary Pawan Kumar Sain,  Director of Mines and Geology Prasanna Acharya and Secretary to chief minister Krishna Murthy for committing illegalities by resorting to undue haste in granting en-mass renewal of mining leases.

The leases were renewed by State government during the earlier tenure of Parrikar and later by Parsekar-led government,  after the proposed amendment to the MMDR Act relating to the auction of mining leases were placed in public domain by the Government of India.

The SC in its verdict on February 07, 2018 had quashed all the 88 mining leases which were renewed by State government bringing to halt the Iron Ore industry.

Congress in its complaint has said that the Supreme Court has been clear in noting and observing this undue haste on the part of BJP led State Government in en masse granting second renewals to the mining leases.

“This undue haste resorted by the State Government thus needs to be investigated specially as regards the express finding and indiction of the State Government by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in the case of Goa Foundation v/s. M/s Sesa Sterlite Ltd. and others,” the complaint has mentioned.

Congress has said that  in view of facts and circumstances stated herein above a case is clearly made out for initiating criminal investigation pertaining to the illegal acts of BJP led government under Parrikar and Parsekar.
