Port Blair, Nov 07: Mr. Vishal Jolly, State President BJP, A&N Islands, written a letter to addressing to the Lt. Governor, A&N Islands, regarding strong objection to issuance of auction notice for operating quarries in South Andaman for a period of one year.
He mentioned that, the quarry leases have been granted for three years in accordance with Rules framed and the reason for curtailing it for one year does not appear logical. It will lead to cost escalation for public and works. On public interest he demanded that, the leases for quarries should be granted for a period of three years as done in the past and necessary corrigendum in the auction notice may be issued.
