The Madhya Pradesh High Court today found out that the spreadsheet submitted as an evidence in Vyapam scam was a forged one.

The spreadsheet was furnished by Congress leader, Digvijaya Singh, who had accused Madhya Pradesh’s Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chauhan, of direct participation in the scam.

The Madhya Pradesh High Court, which is supervising the investigation into the scam that is centered on government officers allegedly taking bribes from job-seekers, found out that the excel sheets were forged.

Digvijaya Singh had also alleged that the police, instead of carrying out a fair investigation, is protecting the CM, who is now serving his third term in the state. Therefore, since 2011, the police investigation has come into scrutiny of the high court.

In February, Singh and another congress leader, Jyotiraditya Scindia , demanded for CBI to take over the case as the police had ruined or tampered the evidences in the case that clearly indicted Chauhan. They also said that an excel spreadsheet found on a computer hard-drive had been altered to delete references of the CM as one of the recommending candidates.

However, the police told the court that the document, a pen drive with a copy of spreadsheet, purveyed by person portrayed by Congress as a whistle-blower, are inauthentic.

  • Hope we will be able to see the complete unmasking of people like Digvijay Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia who have done precious little for people when in power but are bent upon defaming performing CMs like Shivraj Singh Chauhan. Notice how J Scindia has been entirely silent on the Lalit Modi issue.

A global anti-corruption watchdog says the United States has dropped four spots in its list of nations’ anti-corruption efforts and is now no longer listed in the top 20 for the first time.

Acting U.S. Representative at Transparency International, Zoe Reiter, calls a four point drop in the 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) a “red flag.”

She says it comes at a time when the U.S. is experiencing “threats to its system of checks and balances” and an “erosion of ethical norms at the highest levels of power.”

“If this trend continues, it would indicate a serious corruption problem in a country that has taken a lead on the issue globally,” Reiter says.

The United States scored a 71 in the perceptions index after scoring 75 the previous year.

“The expert opinion captured by the CPI supports the deep concern over corruption in government reported by America in our 2017 survey. Both experts and the public believe the situation is getting worse,” Reiter said.
