Mines and geology minister of AP Peddireddy Ramachandrareddy ordered to stop sand mining in the state with immediate effect.

Speaking to the media, he said, “The TDP leaders have earned crores by illegally transporting sand from the Krishna, Guntur and Godavari districts to Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. This is the main reason behind TDP’s defeat.”

The YCP leader stated that a new sand mining policy will be introduced within 15 days and warned the people of illegal sand mining in the state. ‘A Case will be filed under the PD Act against those who are found guilty,’ he said.
