mining worth crores of rupees allegedly being done in Ropar by aam aadmi party (AAP) minister Harjot Singh

Bains. In or demanded a cbi inquiry. In a statement, the SAD leader said that despite the fact that desilting was

banned in the 2023 mining policy of the AAP government, large-scale desilting is currently being carried out with

heavy machinery for sand mining in Chandpura village of Anandpur Sahib tehsil. Evacuation work is being done.

Majithia said, The protest by the villagers also had no impact on the mining department or the district police,

because the miners enjoy government protection. Stating that illegal mining was being done on a large scale in

other parts of Ropar district by the minister and his associates, Majithia said that also illegal mining could be

converted into legal mining by imposing a fee of Rs 6 per cubic feet. Used to be. He said that by doing this the

AAP government is legalizing the sand which is being mined illegally in areas where legal mines have not been

approved.

Punjab has been turned into a virtual island for illegal smugglers

The SAD leader further said, Such acts have made punjab a virtual island for illegal smugglers, where no

questions are asked whether the material is coming from the state or from outside. Stating that this was sheer

looting of the government treasury, Majithia said, The entire party from top to bottom is responsible for this, as

the money received from illegal mining was used to fill the coffers of party leaders as well as in other states. It is

being done to finance the party's election campaign. He said that only an independent investigation can trace the

movement of money from punjab to delhi and the culprits can be punished.
