CMCUN in a joint statement issued by its president MWangkai and secretary H Yongna Panja, cautioned that the move to auction coal block will have an adverse impact on local population and that price fetched might not be adequate.
CMCUN said after the advertisement was published, it held an emergency meeting at Naginimora on May 10.
At the meeting CMCUN had unanimously resolved not to pay any revenue to the department and also not to extend any cooperation with any State government department, firm or individual in connection with the execution of auctioning of Naginimora coal.
The union cautioned that any individual or association taking part in the auctioning process would be held responsible for any untoward incident.
This was stated in a press release by Coal Miner Contractors’ Union, Naginimora president MWangkai and secretary H Yongna Panja.
It may be recalled that earlier, Tuli Area Coal Miner Contractors’ Association (TACMCA) had also expressed objection to the move by the government to auction coal under Tuli area.
