GOAMAP demands CBI inquiry against Goa Ministers, MLAs involved in mining business

Goa Federation of Mines Affected People (GOAMAP) demands CBI inquiry against all the ministers and MLAs in Goa legislative Assembly on the lines with former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda.

Accumulation of wealth through direct and indirect interests by Ministers and MLAs in Goa Assembly needs to be thoroughly probed by CBI.

Over the last few years with boom in exports of Iron Ore from Goa has led to number of Ministers and MLAs in Goa legislative assembly to get into mining business. Goa exported over 38 million tonnes of Iron alone - of which 86% went to China - with number of exporters crossing 50 mark.

Due to easy availability of money number of minister and MLAs in Goa Legislative Assembly are lured into the mining business as a result Goa has been turned into colony of the miners. CBI inquiry will go a long way in changing this situation for better.
