Chandigarh, April 8

Punjab Congress leader Navjot Sidhu on Friday took a dig at Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, who recently announced to bring in a pro-people mining policy to provide sand and gravel at affordable prices.

Sidhu said that a sand trolley, which was priced at Rs 4,000 a month ago, now cost Rs 9,000; out of the reach of the ‘Aam Aadmi,’ hence construction had stalled.

Sharing a video of the “illegal mining” on Twitter, Sidhu wrote, “Illegal mining goes on unabated. What is govt doing? @ArvindKejriwal ji Where is 20k crore from sand? @BhagwantMann ji.”

Meanwhile, Bholath MLA Sukhpal Khaira reminded Kejriwal and Mann of their promises (while they were in opposition) to expose the mining mafia that “looted” Punjab.

“They’re in power, they must issue a white paper to name & fix responsibility as to who all “looted” Punjab including politicians,” Khaira said in a tweet.
