BANGALORE: Social activist TJ Abraham said that he will take up the issue of the governmment’s negligence in replying to a letter of the CEC on illegal mining activities in the state, with the Governor and the Chief Minister soon.

He said that the government failed to reply to a letter dated May 3 from the Central Empowered Committee (CEC) to the Chief Secretary of Karnataka, in which the agency had sought information on mining activities in the state since 2002.

He said, “Illegal mining in the state started during S M Krishna’s tenure as CM. Probe is needed into whether his successors too plundered natural resources of the state."

Gandhian H S Doreswamy was also present.
