Shivpal Singh Yadav said, "I had mining department with me from 2004 to 2007 but no allegation is against me. But the BSP government from 2007 to 2013 and the SP government from 2012 to 2017, mining scams have taken place. This was the reason that prices of sand have gone up. The matter should have been investigated long time back by the BJP."

He said that now the matter is delayed and must have been investigated long time back. Moreover, he too supported the reservation for poor upper caste people. "It was demanded in the PSP rally and we are happy that the Centre has respected its demand. But this should not become a mere slogan as I don't rely on the BJP," said Shivpal Singh Yadav.
