Congress leaders and workers from Bhoa assembly constituency will stage a dharna at Sunder Chak village from 11 am to 2 pm on Saturday to protest against the alleged illegal mining going on in the area for the last seven years.

PPCC Majha zone co-ordinator and spokesman Joginder Singh Chhina said here on Friday that due to illegal mining, all the main and link roads in the area had been badly damaged with the day and night traffic of heavy vehicles loaded with sand and stones. He said that the miners had been earning crores of rupees by carrying out unnatural and illegal mining of sand and stone that had proved a curse for the area and its people who felt cheated at the hands of the ruling SAD-BJP alliance.
