Not only the China-Pakistan border, but mining mafia is also a big threat; Terrorists can penetrate ground up to 500 meters near the barricade, build a tunnel

Posted on 15th Sep 2020 02:11 pm by rohit kumar

The mining mafia on the Rajasthan border poses a major threat to the security of the country. For gypsum, the mafia has dug up the border in Bikaner's Kolayat, Khajuwala, Bajju, Pugal, and Dantore areas in about 70 km.


Gypsum is used in plaster of Paris and chemical fertilizers. There are 30-40 places in these areas, where the mining mafia has reached close to 500 meters of the barrage. Not only this, 30 to 40 feet deep pits have been made near the border.


Through them, the security of the country can be challenged by making tunnel easily. Due to this apprehension, BSF wrote a letter to the administration demanding an immediate stop illegal mining here. The BSF feared that terrorists might come to the country's border by digging tunnels under the guise of laborers engaged in mining. This area is very important from a strategic point of view. Because of this, the Border Security Force is facing difficulties in monitoring.


Why become the enemies of the border, know 3 big reasons


1. Border mining


According to the guidelines of the National Green Tribunal, mining work cannot be done within a radius of 10 km of a wildlife sanctuary area, but only one km from the border connected to the security of the country. Mining leases are being allocated at a distance of. Under their guise, mining work is being done just 500-700 meters away from the border.


2. Only 2 meters cleared, dug up to 7 meters


In 2016-17, 201 mining leases were released in Khajuwala, Dantore, Bursar, Bajju, Pugal area bordering Bikaner. Of these, 152 started mining. The mines are on a 20-year lease. One and a half meters to two meters of excavation is allowed, but digging the ground up to 5-7 meters. Mining leases were given to local account holders, but excavations are being carried out by mining mafia in Haryana and other parts of Rajasthan.


3. Mining mafia cars roam here unabated


Since the commencement of gypsum mining, criminal activities have started on the border. All-day mafia SUVs roam the border areas. Under the security, movement of people occurs only after seeing the identity card in the border area, but the movement of the mining mafia near the border posts continues unabated. Mining mafia liquor party till late night near the border.


BSF worried: We told the government many times, but the action is not being taken

IG (Works) of BSF Amit Lodha said that the case of gypsum mining in Kolayat and Khajuwala is in the information. Many have complained to the state government in this regard, but no action was taken. Illegal mining is a big challenge for security.


These villages are more affected


In Bikaner, illegal mining is taking place along the border in Bajju's 21 BSM and 22 BSM, Aguri Paytan, Dantore 10 BSM, 20 BSM, Kabrewala, Bursar, Kayamwala, and Musewala.


Mining Department: There have been complaints of gypsum mining, will stop it soon

Superintendent mining engineer of Bikaner Circle NK Bairwa said, there have been complaints of gypsum mining near the border in Dantore area. We have campaigned to stop this together with BSF. We will soon be able to stop this completely. Meanwhile, Bikaner Circle mining engineer Ram Niwas Mangal told that action would be taken if any illegal mining is happening on the border. Mining leases in Dantour were released much earlier. We will get the matter investigated.
