Illegal Mining in Rajasthan
Alwar, Jan 22: Illegal mining in different parts of the country has looted a huge amount of wealth. After Karnataka's illegal mining, now the return of Rajputs' land. Supreme court has directly interfered in the Rajasthan's illegal mining and tried to stop it but the work is continuing at full strength.

NDTV reported that men are illegally quarrying the stones in the Alwar district of Rajasthan.

After being appointed by the Supreme Court, the Central Empowered Committee along with the District Magistrate and police chief had inspected the area. The report submitted to the court stated that "The road near the crushers located in village Udhanwas was found deliberately blocked with huge boulders and stones. This is, however, for the first time that the CEC was prevented from carrying out the site visit, something most unfortunate."

The panel appointed by the supreme court has inspected three mining blocks in one district of Rajasthan. While, Swami Agnivesh, Labour activist has requested the High court to intervene in the matter.

"If the Central Empowered Committee had acted with the mandate given by the Supreme Court then things could have been prevented," Agnivesh said.
