Channi & many other Cong leaders involved in illegal sand mining: Amarinder

Chandigarh, Jan 22 (UNI) Dismissing Charanjit Singh Channi’s denial of involvement in illegal sand mining as a total lie, Punjab Lok Congress President Capt Amarinder Singh on Saturday said that as chief minister, he had received specific inputs that Channi had a share in the illegal mining, along with several other Congress leaders and MLAs in Punjab.
“From top to bottom, right up to the level of senior ministers, many people were involved, as I had told Sonia Gandhi while I was chief minister. She asked me what action I was taking in the matter, and I told her I will have to start from the top. The one and only mistake I made during my entire tenure was that I did not take any action then, out of my sense of loyalty to the Congress, since I did not get a go-ahead from Sonia,” he said.
While Channi’s involvement in the mining mafia and in the #metoo incident had exposed him as a contemptible character unworthy of ruling Punjab, Navjot Sidhu’s mental instability made him totally unfit to run the state, said Capt Amarinder, dismissing both the Congress leaders as utterly useless. Expressing surprise at what Rahul Gandhi saw in these people, he said the Congress decision to sideline him for such men was inexplicable.
