Parrikar to meet Modi over Goa mining crisis

Panaji, June 22: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is likely to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi next week to resolve the mining crisis in the coastal state which was triggered after the Supreme Court banned mining in all 88 operational mining leases in March. “The Chief Minister will also hold a joint meeting of all mining concerned MLAs shortly to arrive at a consensus after which the matter will be taken up with the Centre and Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” a statement issued by the Chief Minister’s Office said on Friday, after Parrikar met legislators from the state’s mining belt.
