Goa, might be one of the top tourism driven destinations in India popularly known for a host of activities and offerings appealing to a wide spectrum of visitors from in and around the country but today it is experiencing widespread protests against a series of infrastructural projects that threaten to turn Goa into a hub for the transportation of coal. The agitated citizens of Goa are protesting against several infrastructural projects that pass through the Bhagwan Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park in Mollem. People have been gathering in large numbers in opposition of these infra projects and condemn the government for proposing to make Goa a coal transportation hub. The Bhagwan Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park is Goa’s largest protected area and is known for its rich biodiversity. The infra projects will threaten the biodiversity, damage the ecosystem and threaten wildlife in addition to bringing about unprecedented exploitation of natural resources in the area.
