Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday said he would not recommend a CBI probe into the Madhya Pradesh Vyavsayik Pareeksha Mandal (Vyapam) scandal.
“My government is not above the judiciary. When the high court has refused a CBI enquiry into the matter, how can we order it?” the chief minister said.
He said a Special Investigation Team (SIT) is probing the scam under the supervision of the Madhya Pradesh High Court and if the court feels it should be investigated by any other agency, it is free to do that.
“Supreme court and high court are free to get the matter probed by the agency they want to. We don’t have any problem.”
The chief minister said no other matters in the country have been investigated the way Vyapam scam has till date been.
Once again Anna Hazare has come into the forefront to put resistance to the every growing mismanagement at the administrative level. Hazare is said to follow the principles of Mahatma Gandhi and aims to root out corruption from the country.
According to the media report by PTI, social activist Anna Hazare has come up with his new 20-member `National Core Committee’ ahead of his March 23 agitation in Delhi. Hazare has aimed to expand his party up to 40-50 members.
The prime motive of his new organization is to carry out a Jan-Jagran Yatra throughout the country to awaken the masses.
All the party members hail from various states of the country. In a move to curb any wrongdoing on any one’s behalf, everyone in the party is made to sign affidavits stating that they would never join a political party or contest elections.
He also asserted on the point that, he doesn’t want anyone from his new party to turn out like Arvind Kejriwal and thus he has made every member of the core group to sign the affidavit.
In the coming days, Anna Hazare will be protesting in Delhi for raising the issue of “competent Lokpal” and to highlight farmer’s problems.
Anna Hazare came to light in 2011, when he raised his voice against corruption and went ahead with his hunger strike at the Jantar Mantar in New Delhi. It was only after this; Kejriwal associated himself with Hazare and grabbed the opportunity to launch him into elections and launched the Aam Aadmi Party.
The members list as per PTI report includes Akshaykumar (Odisha), Commander Yashwant Prakash (Rajasthan), Colonel Dinesh Nain (Delhi), Manindra Jain (Delhi), Vikram Taparwada (Rajasthan), Dasharath Kumar (Rajasthan), Karanveer Thaman (Punjab), Praveen Indian (Uttar Pradesh), Sunil Fauji (Uttar Pradesh), Gauravkant Sharma (Uttar Pradesh), Rakesh Rafiq (Uttar Pradesh), P N Kalki (Uttar Pradesh), Sushil Bhatt (Uttarakhand), Bhopal Singh Chaudhary (Uttarakhand), Naveen Jaihind (Haryana), Shivaji Khedkar (Maharashtra), Kalpana Inamdar (Maharashtra), Ram Naik (Karnataka), Serfi Flago (Arunachal Pradesh) and Sunil Lal (Uttar Pradesh).
