New Delhi: The Congress on Sunday demanded a Supreme Court-monitored CBI probe into the deaths of more than 40 people connected with the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh, adding the matter needs to be investigated thoroughly and impartially.

“A Supreme Court-monitored Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe is needed (in the matter). There is no bar on it even as the Special Investigating Team (SIT) is already probing the case,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said at a press conference here.

The Madhya Pradesh Police’s Special Investigating Team (SIT) was not doing enough to unearth the truth and the case should now be transferred to the CBI, he said.

Earlier, the Aam Aadmi Party too demanded on Sunday that the Supreme Court oversee the SIT’s probe into the scam after a television reporter covering the scam died in Madhya Pradesh under mysterious circumstances.

The Congress also accused Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan of “misleading the people and parroting his old line” on the demand to get the case investigated by an impartial investigative agency.

The admission and recruitment racket in the Madhya Pradesh Vyavsayik Pareeksha Mandal (Vyapam) or the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board apparently involves politicians, officials and businessmen.

More than 40 people associated with the scam have died since 2013 – either in mysterious circumstances or have committed suicides.

“We want the truth to come out. Justice should prevail. We all must join our heads and hands so that justice is served to the victims,” Surjewala said.

The Congress leader also condoled the death of Akshay Singh, an Aaj Tak TV channel’s journalist, and Arun Sharma, dean of a medical college in Madhya Pradesh, connected with the scam probe, since Saturday.

Congress helping those who want to weaken Army: Modi, wikimedia commons

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused the Congress of aiding those who he said want to weaken the Indian Army and raising questions over the government and even the Supreme Court over Rafale fighter jets.

“Today, there are two camps in the country. One is the government that is trying to strengthen our Army. The other wants to weaken our Army at any cost,” Modi said, flagging off the 900th coach of Modern Rail Factory and a Humsafar Rake in Rae Bareli, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s Lok Sabha constituency.

“The country has been witnessing that the Congress stands by those powers who don’t want our armed forces to be strengthened,” he added, in an obvious reference to Sonia Gandhi’s son and Congress President Rahul Gandhi who has been accusing corruption in the Rafale jet deal with France.

The Prime Minister said the country was watching “such people” who he added were “getting support of countries pitted against India”.

“What is the reason that people in Pakistan clap when some of our leaders speak?”

The Prime Minister pointedly accused the Congress of raising questions over the dignity of the Defence Ministry, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Air Force, France and the Supreme Court over the purchase of Rafale jet aircraft.

“Some people only accept lies and speak lies. For them the country’s Defence Ministry, Defence Minster and Air Force officers are liars. The French government is also a liar. Now, the country’s Supreme Court is also a liar for them.

“But truth does not need ‘shringaar’ and lies will always die. The country will never forgive the Congress over its attitude towards the Army.”

“What kind of people are they who do not care about the country? I know that they want to abuse Modi. They want to frame Modi for corruption. But I want to know why they have put the country’s pride at stake for this? Why is national security being put on stake?” (IANS)
