Innovative Citizens Forum of Tumsar (ICFT) has demanded the state government to set up a mining cluster at Yedarduchi village in Gobarwahi circle of Tumsar tehsil. This will not only promote investment in the mining sector but will also help in creating employment opportunities in the area.
Maharashtra State Mining Corporation (MSMC) earlier had proposed to the state to create a mining cluster on 35 acres in Yedarbuchi for generating employment but no steps were taken in this regard, after which ICFT appealed to the public representatives to push their demand.
ICFT president Benyashyam Khandelwal, secretary Sitaram Joshi Vallabh, Suresh Belurkar, Navneet Joshi met with former Union minister and Rajya Sabha member Praful Patel in Gondia in this regard.
Patel assured that he will raise the demand before the government.
