Shiv Sena manifesto promises Goa mining resumption and wildlife protection

Agency News

The two key promises found place in Shiv Sena’s poll manifesto are the resumption of the mining activity in Goa and protection of wildlife.

Sena state vice-president and South Goa candidate Rakhi Prabhudesai Naik released the document in Margao town on Tuesday.

Iron ore extraction in the coastal state came to a halt in March last year, after the Supreme Court quashed the renewal of 88 mining leases. The Sena also assured a minimum financial support for the mining dependents through the Central government, in case the industry operations do not resume.

Removing casinos from near water bodies in Goa, complete protection of the Mahadayi river from any kind of diversion, absolute implementation of the Wildlife Protection Act, and scrapping the Coastal Regulation Zone Notification, 2019, are the other promises made by the Uddhav Thackrey-led party.
