Chugh demands CBI probe into sand mafia operations in Punjab

BJP National General Secretary, Tarun Chugh today demanded a CBI investigation into the operations of the sand mafia gangs in Punjab.

He said the AAP government led by chief minister Bhagwant Mann has been just doing a cover-up exercise due to forthcoming elections by registering cases against small players whereas big sharks in the field have been allowed a free run following which the ecology of the state has been gravely endangered.

Strongly condemning the media report on the possibility of a highway bridge between Ropar and Hoshiarpur collapsing due to rampant sand mining in the Swan river belt, Chugh said such reports have been coming from other parts of the state as well.

He said a large number of people in villages are being put to immense harassment and inconvenience due to illegal and rogue activities of the sand mafia all over the state.

The investigation into the entire matter must be handed over to the CBI because there were inter-state ramifications of the sand mafia operations, Chugh added.
