Srinagar 04 October (KMS)
Mehbooba Mufti, head of the People’s Democratic Party in Jammu and Kashmir illegally occupied by India, has said that the Indian mafia is looting the natural resources of the occupied Jammu region in collaboration with the police and other departments.
Talking to reporters in Chadora area of Budgam district, Mehbooba Mufti said that illegal mining of sand and precious stones is being done in Dudhganga river. Most of the mining work is done by contractors at night. He said that mining is allowed only up to two meters deep, but these contractors dig up to 20 to 25 meters with the connivance of the police and other departments, which is a clear violation of the guidelines of the National Green Tribunal. He further said that these contractors have the blessing of police and mining department officials. Mehbooba Mufti said that irrigation problems are arising due to these illegal mining activities. Mining contracts have been given to Indian mafia in the form of non-Kashmiri big contractors who are looting the natural resources of Jammu and Kashmir.
