Dismissing chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s announcement of writing a letter to high court urging CBI inquiry as a diversionary tactic, Congress has demanded a CBI inquiry under Supreme Court monitoring. National general secretary of Congress and in-charge of MP, Mohan Prakash while talking to media said that Chouhan was trying to mislead the state by playing jugglery.
“He (CM) should have written letter to the DoPT (Department of Personnel and Training) and not the high court if he was serious in his demand urging CBI inquiry in to Vyapam scam,” he said.Congress demanded the CBI inquiry under SC monitoring on three points. First, all irregularities of Vyapam scam should be investigated. Second, mysterious deaths of 45 people related to the Vyapam scam and third role of investigating agency and the monitoring agency should be probed, said Prakash.

“OSD of CM is out on bail while OSD of the Governor is in jail. Does this not indicate about the magnanimity of the Vyapam scam,” said Prakash. The deaths claimed to be natural by the government are actually murders to eliminate the evidences and CM is responsible for them, he added.
In reply to a question, Prakash said that Governor Ramnaresh Yadav should also resign.
The Congress leader also announced MP Bandh on July 16. He said that mass movement would be organised in the state and Congress would meet representatives of different communities like teachers, lawyers, students etc and try to mobilise them. ‘Gaon-Gaon Chalo Ghar-Ghar Chalo' would be organised by Congress from July 12 to 15 across the state to mobilise people and tell them the reality of Vyapam and Shivraj’s role in the scam, he said.
Earlier in the day, the Youth Congress demonstrated in front of MPPEB (Vyapam) office. Senior Congress leaders including state Congress chief Arun Yadav was also present.
