Thandla : Political leaders of both BJP and Congress seem to have joint ventures in the illegal sand mining at Padmavati River. Leaders of both the parties share a deep bond of friendship in the illegal business which was revealed again on Sunday.
According to the information, Congress’s District President Naveen Shahji’s son Nitesh Shahji on Sunday night was involved in the illegal sand mining from the government land at the Navapada Ghati village. SDM PS Chauhan on getting the information instructed In-charge Tehsildar Nitin Chauhan who seized the JCB (GJ 20 T 3802) used in the illegal mining and brought it to Thandla Police Station.
BJP leader Vishwas Soni pressurized the administration and threatened them not to lodge any case in this matter. But the officers rejected the threat of Soni and have lodged a case and have kept the JCB in the custody of Thandla Police Station. It is to be noted that in previous year also this bond of friendship between political leaders was revealed when the Congress leaders pressurized the administration for not lodging a case of illegal mining against a BJP leaders.
