RG ensures support to mining dependent, alternate livelihood


Panaji: Revolutionary Goans Supremo, Manoj Parab alleged that despite repeated assurances, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant has been unable to restart Goa’s struggling mining industry in the last three years while addressing a gathering at Sanvordem recently.
“When Sawant took over, he said mining would be restarted within a time frame of three months. It has been three years, no mining has started in Goa and neither has the government bothered to provide the mining dependents with an alternative livelihood. The natural beauty of Sanvordem Constituency such as its forests, farms, ancient temples needed to be preserved .The government has failed to promote this area as a tourist destination despite its rich and diverse heritage,” said Manoj.
“The BJP-led government has only planned various disastrous projects such as road widening at Mollem, double tracking and a transmission line which will only destroy the flora and fauna over here. Nothing has been done to promote agriculture and the required infrastructure as the farmers were struggling to avail of government schemes,” he added.
Revolutionary Goans Cortalim candidate, Teotinio Costa explained to the gathering the POGO Bill in details.
While the Sanvordem Candidate, Vipin Naik highlighted the various initiatives and activities carried out by Revolutionary Goans.
“Our locals MLA and PWD Minister, Deepak Pauskar has shown zero progress and development in his own constituency. Everyone is aware of the allegations against him in the job scam. The people of Sanvordem are still facing issues related to scarcity of water, poor sanitization and lacks of toilet facility despite the PWD minister being from the same constituency,” said Vipin who signed off requesting the gathering to vote for a change in the upcoming assembly elections.
