    Goa CM Digambar Kamat under fire for allegedly shielding mining scam


    Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat has come under fire from all sides for allegedly shielding a full-blown mining scamrampantly going on in the state for several years.

    The allegations of Rs 10,000 crore mining scam in Goa has landed Kamat in the eye of a storm. Kamat, who has also been the mining minister of Goa for over a decade, has come under scanner for protecting the mining lobby and has been accused of ignoring complaints.

    Attacking Kamat, Parrikar said, "I will have to ask for the resignation of the chief minister, health minister, everyone has to resign. They are all part of the scam. The chief minister was mining minister for 11 years. He should take moral responsibility for the irregularities."

    This gentleman is fully involved in this mess. He has had the distinction of being the only CM who has continued to have the mines portfolio under him. This has been going on since the time he was a BJP CM and later switched over to Congress and bacame CM again. His daughter is also married to the Dempo family who were till a couple of years back one of the largest miners in Goa till they sold their stake to Vedanta Group.

    Now it remains to be seen what will the Cong. appointed Governor do, will he be as active as his counterparts in Karnatka and Gujrat or will ha continue to sleep.
