Chandigarh,  Sept 3

BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh today lambasted the AAP government in Punjab for putting national security at stake by allowing illegal mining on the Indo-Pak border in Punjab.

Expressing serious concern at the ongoing mining along the Ravi river bed,  Chugh said the AAP ministers and leaders are hand in glove with mining mafia gangs even at the cost of national security.

He said after objections raised by the BSF and other security agencies on the illegal mining along the international border it is for the first time that the state government seemed to be making money after putting the nation’s security at stake.


Chugh demanded a CBI investigation in the cases of illegal mining along the Indo-Pak border so that the AAP government’s nefarious designs are exposed sooner than later.

He said while the AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal had promised people of Punjab to get rid of mafias, but covertly he has joined hands with them and has started taking illegal gains out of it.

“The false and misleading propaganda of Kejriwal would be exposed by the BJP in other states as well even as Punjab has started learning its lessons,”Chugh said.
