Locals will get recruitment preference, says Goa CM Pramod Sawant

Pramod Sawant said that once a new lease holder comes on board, the EC – in the case of the 88 mining leases – will be transferred to the new lease holder. House members repeatedly asked the CM to give a date by which mining will start. Sankalp Amonkar said that for the past ten years, the government has given ‘tarikh pe tarikh’ (date after date), and demanded that mining should be started at the earliest.
