Sand prices: Navjot Singh Sidhu slams AAP govt

Sand prices: Navjot Singh Sidhu slams AAP govt

Navjot Singh Sidhu, former PPCC president, slammed the AAP government for failing to control sand prices in the state. During a visit to the retail construction material market at the Maal Mandi area on GT road, Sidhu asked for their prices. Sand, which was Rs 1,600 rupees till a month ago, now costs Rs 3,200 per 100 cubic feet today. Construction projects are coming to halt and the reason is increase in the rate of sand, he claimed.

He took a potshot at Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal who used to claim that his party’s government would earn Rs 20,000 crore from the sale of sand in the state. After holding a talk with the sand suppliers he told the mediapersons that enough supply was not coming out of the sites leased out to the contractors for mining. As a result the demand remained unmet. So, short supply was causing the prices to go up in the market. —
