The Goa Mining People’s Front, an umbrella organization of people dependent on the state’s mining sector, has decided to stage a protest during the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Goa next month, its chief Puti Goankar said.
The GMPF has been agitating for several months now demanding amendment in mining laws for the resumption of mining operations in Goa.
PM Modi is expected to be in the state in the first week of January 2019 to inaugurate the third bridge over Mandovi River.
He said that as part of the protest, GMPF members will show black flags during the PM’s visit.
