Ponda: Still there is uncertainty over the functioning of Sanjivani sugar mill. Former PWD Minister and Marcaim MLA Sudin Dhavalikar said that to protect the interest of sugarcane farmers, government should run the sugar mill.
He said, “I have raised the issue several times in the state assembly. The sugar mill should start operations for season 2020-21 which is nearing and I feel sad that the government has still not found out a solution on the issue. I hope that the government will never allow closure of the mil.”
