Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi is a sand mafia, alleges AAP leader Raghav Chadha

In the letter, the officer mentioned that the land comes under the forest department and activities like mining cannot be conducted there, Chadha said referring to the site in Jindapur.

Aam Aadmi Party leader Raghav Chadha today alleged that Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi is a sand mafia. Chadha’s remark came after paid a surprise visit to a village in the CM’s constituency Chamkaur Sahib. “CM Charanjit Singh Channi is doing Bhangra from place to place and here in his own assembly, the mafia is mining sand worth crores of rupees. Channi sahib used to say that he is not the CM of sand mafias but here it seems that CM is the sand mafia,” said Raghav Chadha who claimed to expose the CM.

He said, “Conducted a RAID in Punjab CM Channi’s constituency; exposed his false claims on illegal sand mafia. Sand worth hundreds of crores is being illegally extracted with pol patronage. Honest forest officer flagged this corruption but was transferred very next day.” In the letter, the officer mentioned that the land comes under the forest department and activities like mining cannot be conducted there, Chadha said referring to the site in Jindapur.

Chadha, who visited Jindapur village in Chamkaur Sahib, claimed that expose of illegal sand mining in Charanjit Singh Channi will shake Punjab’s politics. He said as per estimates, 800 to 1,000 trucks, called tippers, filled with sand were being taken out from the site.

Following Chadha’s alleged ‘expose’, AAP chief and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal asked whether Congress will take an action against Channi. “Such a huge sand theft is taking place in Channi Sahib’s own constituency? Is this possible without patronage or partnership? Many people alleged that Channi Sahib is the biggest sand mafia. I didn’t believe it. But today Channi Sahib will have to answer the questions of the people. Will Congress take action?” said Arvind Kejriwal.

Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia claimed that illegal mining cost the exchequer Rs 20,000 crore every year. “Due to the illegal mining, the Punjab government is being defrauded of Rs 20 thousand crores every year. If this money will come in the account of the government, then following the policies of Arvind Kejriwal, education, health, electricity, water and Rs 1000 per month can be arranged for women of entire Punjab,” said Sisodia.

Notably, the Aam Aadmi Party has upped its ante against the ruling Congress ahead of the next year’s assembly polls. The 117 seats of the Punjab assembly will go to the polls in 2022. Opinion polls have predicted a close contest between Congress and the AAP.
