New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday accused the Congress of playing politics over “dead bodies” and maintained that only the high court can refer the investigation into the Vyapam scam to the CBI.

Party leaders also said that not all deaths should be linked to the scam.

“One should understand the technicalities of the matter. The high court is already inquiring into the matter. We can’t ignore high court and ask for a CBI inquiry,” BJP’s vice-president and Rajya Sabha member from Madhya Pradesh Prabhat Jha told media persons here.

He added: “If the high court itself says that it can’t proceed with the investigation, then the government of Madhya Pradesh will decide the next course of action.”

Jha also accused the Congress of playing politics over dead bodies.

“Congress is playing politics over deaths. They should not play politics over dead bodies,” he said.

BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain advised the Congress to have faith in the judiciary.

“They (Congress) went to Supreme Court and it said that the matter is under high courts’s jurisdiction. Does Congress consider itself above SC,” he asked.

The Congress does not have faith in the judicial system. the high court is monitoring the investigation, Hussain told media persons.

Meanwhile, another BJP spokesperson G.V.L. Narsimha Rao said the death of Arun Sharma, the dean of Madhya Pradesh medical college, who was found dead in a hotel room in Delhi, was natural.

“No one should really jump to any conclusion to link it with Vyapam. We consider this death (of Arun Sharma) to be completely natural. It has nothing to do with Vyapam,” Rao told the media.

Autopsy on Sharma’s body will be performed in Safdarjung Hospital on Monday.

BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday said that the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was “very necessary” and added that the government was working on building a consensus with stakeholders in the northeast.

Addressing the media here, Amit Shah also said that the government had brought the bill after much thought and Home Minister Rajnath Singh was holding consultations with various people to address the opposition to the issue.

“There are two sides of a coin. There are decisions that some like and some don’t… The fate of huge number of refugees can’t be kept hanging in the balance and we are firm on it,” he said.

Asked what would be the BJP’s stand if suggestions come to withdraw the Bill as it has created unrest in the entire northeast, Amit Shah said: “Home Minister is holding discussions with political parties. Discussion with some parties have already taken place. If consensus emerges, we will definitely move ahead but the Citizenship Bill is highly necessary for the country.”

The Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who entered India before December 31, 2014.
