Patna: Independent woman MLA Jyoti Rashmi
on Friday sat on dharna on the steps of the legislative assembly
building demanding a CBI probe into illegal mining in Bihar.
"I will continue to protest in one form or other till
the state government accepts my demand to recommend a CBI
probe into illegal mining in Bihar," she said.
Rashmi, who represents Dehri assembly seat, said that
if the state government claims to be honest and opposed to
illegal mining then why does it fear a CBI probe.
She also rued her suspension from the legislative
assembly for 10 days for protesting inside the House against
the case lodged against her husband and ex-MLA Pradeep Joshi
for illegal mining.
