Anantapur: The 3-member Central Empowered Committee (CEC) appointed by the Supreme Court to study the disputed borders of the Obulapuram Mining Corporation (OMC) and the Bellary Iron Ore Private Limited (BIOP), headed by M.K.Jewarki, member secretary of CEC, visited the mining sites of the companies in dispute as well as four other sites in Hirehal mandal in the district.
Mr. Jewarki and his colleagues met the representatives of all stakeholders in the jurisdiction of Andhra Pradesh, including the top brass of the mining licencee companies at the mining sites in the mountains and valleys, according to official sources.
The CEC members interacted with the parties concerned with regard to the dispute and heard their versions and received the copies of documents submitted to them for substantiating their claims. Contrary to expectations, the CEC members did not dwell on studying the disputed borders, nor the different maps concerned.
Mr Jewarki visited the mines along with two other members of the CEC, including Mahendra Vyas and A.D.N. Rao. Top officials of mines, forest and revenue departments, including the Chief Conservator of Forests, Padmanabam, were present. The CEC spent more time meeting stakeholders in the mining borders controversy and also reviewing the same with the forest and mines department officials.
