Goa infrastructure development not only for coal movement: CM

Panaji, Oct 25 (TIWN) In the wake of ongoing statewide protests against three major infrastructure projects in Goa, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Sunday said the infrastructure was getting developed not only to facilitate movement of coal but also to benefit other businesses.

Speaking at the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the Konkan Maritime Cluster, first such project for building maritime industry-related infrastructure, Sawant said Goa was strategically located and had the potential to serve as a maritime hub for export and import of goods as well.

"The infrastructure is not being created for the movement of coal alone; so, stop these agitations. We have not started import of coal. Coal has been imported for so many years now. We have not even increased the import of coal. We are carrying out this activity for the development of industries and promotion of export and import," Sawant added.
