Clarify stand on MLAs’ role in illegal mining: Khaira to CM
Charanjit Singh Channi

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, March 10

Leader of Opposition Sukhpal Khaira today asked Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh to clarify his position on the alleged involvement of 11 Congress MLAs, including one minister, in illegal mining.

Addressing a press conference, Khaira alleged that he had come to know that the intelligence wing had sent a report to the CM in which names of 11 MLAs and Technical Education Minister Charanjit Singh Channi were mentioned. Khaira said the CM should make those names public and take action against them.

He demanded that the CM should mark an inquiry only into the sites he had mentioned in his tweet.

Corruption rampant: AAP

Fazilka: The people of Punjab do not see any change during the last one year after taking over of the regime by the Congress. The issues of corruption, sand mafia and registration of fake cases are still rampant. This was alleged by AAP state convener Bhagwant Mann and co-convener Aman Arora here today. — OC

Will sue him: Channi

Reacting to the allegations, Technical Education Minister Charanjit Singh Channi asked Khaira to refrain from giving baseless statements. He asked Khaira to withdraw his statement or he would be forced to file defamation case against him. Channi said as a minister now and earlier as Leader of Opposition, he had always raised the issue of illegal mining and was strictly against it. He claimed that none of his family members or relative had any link with legal or illegal mining.
