Speaking to media persons, Sumalatha Ambarish said, “I have raised my voice against the illegal mining across the Mandya district since I became an MP. My intention is not to be unfair to my people and farmers, I am in favor of development. But in some parts of Mandya district, illegal mining is taking place and this is unfair to farmers. That is why I told Minister Murugesh Nirani about this. He said he was coming with them today and checking.
