New Delhi, March 7: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Thursday demanded a CBI probe into the “scam” in allocation of sandstone mines in Rajasthan and sought the resignation of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
BJP leader Prakash Javadekar alleged that the chief minister changed the criteria of allocation of sandstone mines to benefit his relatives.
“Gehlot changed the rules for allotting mines, and out of 37 allocations, 19 went to his relatives,” he said.
“This is the worst mining scam ever, Gehlot should resign and a court monitored CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) enquiry should be ordered,” he said.
Gehlot is facing allegations of allotting sandstone mines near Jodhpur’s Bada Kotecha village to his close relatives.
