An organisation of mining dependents fighting for the sector's resumption in Goa Friday said BJP national president Amit Shah would meet its representatives on January 13 to discuss the issue.

The mining industry in Goa came to a standstill in March last year after the Supreme Court quashed 88 leases and prohibited extraction of fresh iron ore. Goa Mining People's Front (GMPF) president Puti Gaonkar told reporters that Union Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu has arranged the meeting with Shah on January 13 in New Delhi.

"Besides Prabhu, Union AYUSH Minister Shripad Naik will be accompanying the GMPF delegation in the meeting with Shah," Gaonkar said. He said Shah's intervention would be sought to ensure the Central government expeditiously amends mining laws to allow the sector to restart in Goa.
