Dr M Shamsul Alam, Energy Expert :
Stones belonging to Madhyapara Granite Mining Company Ltd (MGMCL) have disappeared the way coal from Dinajpur did. It was told after the coal disappearing that it got mixed with the air after being vaporised. But how will the authorities concerned narrate the stones going missing now? Stones neither get gutted nor get vaporised. They cannot even fly or buried. Coal was mixed with soil, but will that be possible to do in case of stones?
Stones cannot be flown in the air. So, who will the authorities now explain the system loss how they pointed out during coal disappearance? Stones are gone the way coal disappeared. It cannot happen that those who benefitted from the coal scam will not do the same now. Equality was needed in this case, which was executed finally. The MGMCL’s explanation over the matter is not realistic. There is no reality in the explanation.
The government has take a hardline over the anomalies in energy sector they way it did in fighting militancy and drug abuse. It has to show its seriousness in this case, taking serious and tough measures. Otherwise, how will we expect that the anomalies in the sector will end?
