DIPHU, March 18 - The Karbi Anglong district administration has constituted a committee to conduct a proper enquiry into the unabated coal mining in the district. The committee was constituted following an instruction from the state government.

It may be recalled that unlawful coal mining has been going on for the past several months and that has led to massive resentment among the NGOs and concerned citizens.

Bowing to public pressure, a committee was formed at a high-level meeting at the Deputy Commissioner�s conference hall in Diphu yesterday. The committee consists of senior officers, who will now conduct routine checking in various pockets in order to check illegal mining.

In both Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong districts, huge reserves of low-grade coal is found in inside the forest areas. But surprisingly enough, the Department of Mines and Minerals is yet to take any visible steps to stop illegal mining. Similarly, the Forest department has also failed completely in this regard. Disappointed with the authorities inaction, NGOs and local people have been demanding strong action against the people involved in illegal mining in the greater interest of flora and fauna of the district.
