RJD calls for Bihar bandh over sand mining

Patna: The RJD has called for a statewide bandh on December 21 to protest against the sand mining policy of the state government.

According to RJD leaders, the ongoing crackdown on sand mining has forced the builders to slow down the construction work in Bihar which has led to “job crisis among daily wage construction workers”.

Speaking on the issue RJD Chief Lalu Yadav said that “the state government is not concerned about the plight of the general public which is facing lots of hardship due to their policies. We will continue our fight and expose the failures of the government”.

The JD(U)-BJP government after coming to power in July came up with a new policy to regulate the trade and also to end illegal sand mining in Bihar.
