The mining businessmen put their problems before the administration during the meeting. Officials of the Forest Department and Forest Corporation were present in the meeting related to mining, chaired by SDM Himanshu Kafaltia. Here the SDM said that at present the water level in Sharda is very high, due to which the demarcation will not be possible. He said that the water would recede within about 15 days, after which the mining operation would be started.
