Chandigarh, September 21

A day after Mining Minister Harjot Bains marked a probe into the alleged illegal mining activities of former Assembly Speaker Rana KP Singh, the latter sought an investigation by the CBI or a High Court judge.

“Bains’ locus standi to mark a Vigilance probe against me when the Punjab and Haryana High Court is already looking into illegal mining along the International Border. The credentials of Bains are questionable,” he told the media here today.

Bains had yesterday written to the Vigilance Bureau to investigate Rana’s role in illegal mining, alleging that the Congress leader had misused his position during the Congress government.

“I dare Bains to order a probe by the CBI or a HC judge into the allegations of illegal mining during five years of the Congress rule and the ongoing illegal mining during the AAP government,” said Rana KP. — TNS
