Disputing the findings of Justice MB Shah Commission's report that had cited several illegalities by mine lease holders, the Goa Mining Association on Monday moved the Supreme Court seeking to lift its October 5 order, which had banned mining activities as well as transportation of iron and manganese ore in Goa till further orders.
In its plea, also requesting a forest bench led by Justice Aftab Alam to implead them as a party to the PIL which had led to passing of the impugned order, the association has attacked Justice M B Shah Commission report, which was tabled in the Parliament on September 7. The report had alleged that iron ore worth R35,000 crore was plundered by mining companies by illegal mining in the last 12 years. The SC is expected to take up the Association's plea on Friday.
