Hitting Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, Delhi CM and AAP National Officer Arvind Kejriwal said, “Channi Sahab has made an inquiry on himself. When Bhagwant Mann becomes CM, he will conduct a fair investigation into sand mining. When his relative (Punjab CM) confessed that all the money belongs to Channi, why doesn’t ED stop him? »
The nephew of the Chief Minister of Punjab, Charanjit Singh Channi, Bhupinder Singh Honey, was taken into custody for 14 days Friday in the illegal sand mining case.
