Sand Reaches only to Central Govt. Institutions : Peddireddy

Amaravati, Nov 19: Brushing aside the allegations by Opposition leaders that the government is allocating sand reaches to private entities, Minister for Panchayat Raj, Peddireddi Ramachandra Reddy made it clear that the sand reaches in State will be handed to Central Government Institutions.

The Minister said that DMG (Department of Mining and Geology) has written letters to eight institutions, of which NMDC and MSDC have shown interest in taking up the sand reaches, adding that the contract will be given to the lowest bidder. He stated that Opposition leader Chandrababu Naidu has been intentionally creating false rumours that  the State is handing over the reaches to private parties but ironically it was Naidu who has looted huge amount running into thousands of crores of rupees in the name of free sand policy and brought his close associate Shekar Reddy into the State. The State government brought in a sand policy to put an end to the sand mafia in state and supply sand in a most transparent manner.
