E-auction not a permanent solution: Parrikar

 

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday said that he will soon write to the Supreme Court bringing to its notice that e-auction by government would not be a long term-permanent solution to the mining in Goa.

The State has been presently conducting e-auctions of the already extracted ore stacked in different places, under the supervision of a Supreme Court monitoring committee.

Speaking informally to presspersons after meeting a group of agitators who were suspecting hanky panky in transportation of ore sold in e-auction and presently being transported from their village of Caurem in south Goa, Mr. Parrikar said that there were so many aspects of business involved in mining that need to be attended to, which it was practically difficult for a small State like Goa.

“I am clear that government is not good in business,” he said.

In reply to a question, he admitted that the State government had received a letter from the Centre inviting it for a meeting in New Delhi to discuss its proposal that e-auction should be a permanent mechanism for the mining sector.

“When Supreme Court has, in its recent order assigned the entire task of handling the mining to the State government, I would only ask them(Centre) who are they to tell the State what to do. That is what I would ask them”, Mr. Parrikar said.
