Punjab's irrigation and power minister Rana Gurjit Singh is courting controversy for bidding and acquiring sand and gravel mines in the name of his cook and other office staff in Punjab. The ministers chef outbid 32 other players to acquire a Rs 26.51 crore mining site in Punjab. The SAD has demanded immediate sacking of the minister. Party MP Prem Singh Chandumajra said the case should be handed over to the enforcement directorate for investigation. The Akali Dal says it would raise the issue in Parliament.

Stating that the entire auction was an eye wash and reminiscent of Congress deceit and doubles standards, Chandumajra said it was condemnable that the state apparatus ...
