Union Minister for AYUSH Shripad Naik said his government would definitely solve the mining issue and if the courts do not offer relief through the review petition, the government would definitely consider the ordinance route to resolve the mining issue.
“The option of an ordinance is always there. But that is something we will consider if the route of the courts do not give us any relief,” Shripad Naik said.
Naik was asked to react to Goa Forward Supremo Vijai Sardesai’s comments that he would have to rethink his allegiance with the NDA and the State BJP if the government continues doing nothing about the current mining impasse.
Sardesai had demanded that the government opt for the ordinance route to solve the issues since Goa’s mining history was unique.
When asked how long the government would wait before filing the review petition, Naik said that the preparations are on and the issue is currently before the Attorney General of India. “By next season, we are sure that mining will restart. One way or another,” Naik said.
