MP Cong demands CBI enquiry into mining leases

Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh Congress on Sunday demanded a CBI enquiry into the alleged role of the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and others in allotment of mining leases in the state.

Addressing a press conference, the State Congress media department chairman, Manak Agarwal said that the scam in allotment of mining leases in the State was bigger than that of Bellary.

He said that if facts about mining leases came to fore, he had no doubt that Chouhan would be in big trouble.

He said that one-third area of the State was occupied by mines.
