Raghav Chadha, Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) co-in-charge of Punjab Affairs, reacting to the seizure of crores of rupees from premises of Chief Minister Channi’s relatives in the Enforcement Directorate (ED) raids, said that when Channi earned so much in 111 days, imagine how much he would have earned if he had been the Chief Minister for five years. He said that the money found from the houses of CM’s relatives is the money collected from mafia and the loot of the people of Punjab. Chadha reiterated that Chief Minister Channi is running sand mafia in his area. AAP leader said that Chief Minister Channi and his relatives have earned crores of rupees from their association with sand mafia and so far, information about illegal assets worth Rs. 56 crore has been received. A lot of gold and property papers have been recovered. Raghav Chadha asked, “Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, who pretends to be a common man, should answer that where did his relatives get so much money from?”Chadha exclaimed that when such a big amount has been found in the house of Channi's nephew, then if this raid had taken place at Channi's house, it is difficult to guess how many crores would have been found there.
He mentioned that ED also raided the house of AAP National Convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, where they recovered 10 mufflers. And here, 10 crores have been seized from the house of Channi's relatives. This is the difference between Aam Aadmi Party and Congress Party. Chadha questioned that from where did so much property, expensive vehicles and money come to Channi's relatives? How many more relatives of his, have he made millionaires? If his nephew earned so much money in 111 days, then how much Chief Minister Channi has earned? Raghav Chadha asked Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and PPCC President Navjot Sidhu to make their stand clear on the matter.Chadha said that the raid of ED is not over yet, so the amount of recovered money will increase further. He said that before becoming the Chief Minister, Channi's nephew and relatives did not have that much money.
What happened after becoming the Chief Minister that they have crores of cash lying aroung? This clearly means that Channi's family and relatives abused the power and used the power to earn money.He said that a few days ago I had exposed the illegal mining site in Chamkaur Sahib, the assembly constituency of Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, sand mafia in that area was running under the patronage of Channi himself. I had said that the commission of sand mafia is going to Chief Minister Channi and his relatives. But at that time Channi called me an outsider and threatened me. But the truth has come to the light itself. Today, after the raid of ED, the truth of sand mafia has also come in front of the people of Punjab. Now the people of Punjab have come to know that Chief Minister Channi is the kingpin of sand mafia. In the upcoming elections, the people of Punjab will give the fitting reply to Chief Minister Channi and Congress.
