NC seeks judicial probe into alleged mining mafia involving Union minister, senior J&K officers
Jammu: National Conference on Tuesday sought a high level judicial probe by a sitting judge of the Supreme Court into the allegations of a mining mafia involving a Union Minister of the Bharatiya Janata Party and senior officers of the Union Territory Administration.
“The allegations coming from none other than the Pradesh Secretary of the BJP and a former Member Legislative Council are grave in nature and cannot be just brushed aside,” a spokesperson of the National Conference said in a statement.
The spokesperson said that the truth can come to fore only after an independent and impartial probe is carried out in a time-bound manner.
Since the faith of the people in the system is at stake, the administration must order an inquiry forthwith, as the ‘hafta-culture’ is highly deplorable, he added.
