Groundnut Procurement Scam: Congress Stages Dharna, Alleges Many Top BJP Leaders Involved

After days of protests at various places in Saurashtra against the Rs 4000 crore groundnut procurement scam, the Congress party organised a dharna in Ahmedabad on Tuesday, reiterating its demand to get the scam probed by a sitting judge of the Gujarat High Court.

The top leadership of the state Congress party, along with AICC Gujarat in-charge Rajeev Satav, participated in the dharna at Subhash Bridge area of Ahmedabad. The dharna caps off protests that were organised in district headquarters by the party a day earlier on Monday.

The Congress yet again alleged that investigation of the groundnut procurement scam was not being handed over to a sitting judge of the Gujarat High Court because bigger leaders of the party might be involved in the scam.
