New sand policy will help illegal mining: Cong

New sand policy will help illegal mining: Cong

Mangaluru, Aug 26(UNI) Senior Congress leader and former minister B Ramanath Rai on Wednesday alleged that the new sand policy that aims at entrusting sand extraction to Karnataka State Mineral Corporation and Hutti Gold Mines will result in injustice to traditional sand extractors in the CRZ area in Dakshina Kannada.
Speaking to media here he said that the new policy will benefit only the rich and influential.
He urged the government to bring back the old sand policy initiated by the previous Congress government wherein traditional sand extractors involved in sand extraction prior to 2011 are given permits on seniority basis to extract sand in CRZ area. In the non-CRZ area, tender-cum- auctioning of the blocks should be continued to extract sand.
