Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:
Shocking state of mining mafia.
After Beas, visited Mukerian & saw first hand how mafia has extracted sand up to 200 feet.
CM Capt Amarinder Singh & minister Sarkaria Team should tell Punjabis which law allows extraction of sand up to 200 feet?
Officially the limit is 10 feet only. 2 days back when we exposed illegal mining at Beas, Mining Secretary justified the same.
I’m waiting how govt will justify illegal activity at Mukerian. We aren’t afraid of cases. Cong govt can register 10 cases against me but I’ll continue to safeguard interests of Punjabis.
Walked several kms to see the extent to which illegal sand mining at Bringali village in Mukerian has ravaged the area.
People told me the illegal mining was being done by Gurjant Brar s/o Cong MLA from Baghapurana Darshan Brar.
Let’s see what Capt Amarinder Singh has to say to this.
