Political parties demands on meeting the 15 Finance commission were basically the same. Money for Mining, solid waste management and other varied reasons. But their quantum of funds was different. The BJP asked for 1200 crore rupees out of which 300 crore rupees was for mining, while Goa Forward asked for a whopping 6000 crore rupees only for mining. The Congress came somewhat in between with an overall outlay of 1200 crore rupees.
The fifteenth finance commission is in Goa for three days starting from Thursday. On Thursday they met the panchayats and municipalities. And in the evening they met with industry and then with all the political parties to take their views. On Friday they will be meeting the chief minister.
