Identify staff named in mining report, depts told

The meeting, which lasted for eight hours on Monday in the Vidhana Soudha, mainly focused on the Mines Department. The exercise of studying the report and discussing it will continue for the next one week. The key departments, which are directly and indirectly related to mining, have been given deadlines to identify those indicted or figuring in the report.

The responsibility of acting against those indicted has been vested with the departments.

In all probability, the departments would be able to complete the task given by September-end. The government, while constituting the panel on August 18, had given two months’ time to study the Lokayukta report and suggest to the government the action to be taken to implement the report.

The report, along with its annexures, is voluminous, and hence it requires sufficient time to study it, official sources said.
