Congress MLA from Ghumarwin Rajesh Dharmani has demanded a CBI inquiry into all projects and institutions of Jaypee Industries. Recently the HP High Court has slapped a fine of Rs 100 crore on Jaypee Industries for violating environment and other norms at Bagheri in Solan district.
While addressing mediapersons, Dharmani said that he has raised all these issues in the Vidhan Sabha repeatedly, but he was surprised that every time the question was either evaded or side-tracked. That was clear proof of something undesirable going on in these projects, which fact has now been substantiated by the High Court judgment.
He said such an inquiry must include all aspects of these violations, including those of environment, land grab, forest felling, local youth employment, CAT plan implementations, dumping site directions, non-payment of crores of government money on account of materials extracted on project sites, carrying of clinker to outside the state against the Mining Act and Rules and causing huge and incalculable difficulties to lakhs of local farmers of areas.
