Panaji, Sep 9 (UNI) Charging the Goa government with failing to initiate action against the director of mines for alleged acts of commission and omission, BJP opposition leader Manohar Parrikar said he would consider approaching the Supreme Court to get justice.

Interacting with mediapersons here today, Mr Parrikar said chief minister Digambar Kamat, who is also in charge of mines, had failed to keep the assurance given to him in the recent session of the state legislative assembly on the issue.

''If Kamat does not to take action, I have no other alternative but to approach the Supreme Court,'' he said.

''This vindicated that Kamat was also indirectly involved in the illegal mining activities, as he was blinking his eyes as the incharge minister,'' Mr Parrikar alleged.

He further alleged that ten ministers of the ruling coalition had been involved in the mining activities in Goa and this needed a thorough probe.
