“The processes leading to the grant of the license were not quite clear and were not transparent, very opaque,” he said. So it called for a lot of questions.

He continued: “We believe that if the processes had taken time and the duration for the various permits were within the framework, this issue wouldn’t have come out.”

“There are processes and durations that one needs to pass through.

“If for some reason, one has to go beyond those processes, that will not be an acceptable permit at all.
