While the Captain Govt. makes a big claims that there is no illegal mining anywhere in the state and neither it will be allowed and all this was happening in the previous government era. Phuman Singh said that the latest example of eye opening can be seen in their area also.

With the help and support of local Congress leaders and Administration, illegal mining is being done by one contractor Prakash Singh S/o Jagir Singh. They said that under the supervision of the administration, under the control of his Tehsil Dharmkot Chokki Kamalak, about 8 acres of village Chak Singhpura. Whereas contractor Prakash Singh has been allotted for the land of Chiman Singh from the land of 0.76 hectares for mining, whose measles is number 11/7 min (6-16), 15 (8-0). But contractor Prakash Singh has been legally mining in half the number so far from the allotted area by the Government. The contractor has left the allotted area and started the mining land illegally without his knowledge.

The land, which is in the name of Dilawar Singh's son of Fuman Singh, son of Dewan Singh and Sarvan Singh, has started mining this illegitimate mine. 250 tipser and 100-150 trolley, which is done from Chain mounted (Pope Lane) machines. This is causing the government loss of 25-30 lakh rupees.

They said that they do not want mining in their land, but they are getting threats from the contractor.
