Panaji: Intensifying its protest demanding immediate resumption of mining activities in the State, over thousands of mining dependents will march to Azad Maidantomorrow.

The Goa Mining People’s Front (GMPF) is been protesting across various mining talukas as part of their agitation for last one month.

 On Monday, the dependents will hold dharna at Azad maidan from 10.00am to 5.00pm.

“As the government had said that the solution for the mining will be worked out latest by June 7, we waited for some action. However, no concrete steps have come from government to restart the mining activities. Hence, we have decided to go ahead with the dharna at Azad maidan,” GMFP said in their press statement issued.

Thousands of dependents including truck owners, barge owners, machinery owners and others are expected to participate in the dharna.

North District Magistrate (DM) has already evoked Section 144 on the either side of the Mandovi bridge and in and around KTC Bus stand in Panaji, Corporation of the City of Panaji and Village Panchayats Penha-de-Franca and Merces.

GMPF has also launched signature campaign for resumption of mining activities, which will be submitted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
