The BJP today demanded a comprehensive independent probe into the Satyam scam as it felt that the inquiry of Andhra Pradesh CB-CID has not generated any confidence among the stake holders.

"Unfortunately, the inquiry of CB-CID has not generated any confidence among any of the stake holders. BJP demands a comprehensive independent probe or joint parliamentary committee probe of this scandal," party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told reporters here.

It is a colossal fraud wherein public money has been squandered and the nation duped. An independent probe by a group of experts could be more appropriate as Parliament tenure is nearing its end, he added.

"Now what needs to be probed is the nexus between Maytas and Y S Rajshekhar Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. Not only a metro rail project, but also various irrigation projects were awarded, SEZs sanctioned and liberal land allotment was done. This quid-pro-quo needs to be investigated," Javadekar said.

The country has the right to know that how the diversion of funds between Satyam and Maytas took place? Who are the real beneficiaries of Maytas? Whether PN route or Mauritious route is used?, he added.
