New Delhi, July 8 (ANI): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Wednesday said that the Congress is demanding his resignation, because they cannot see the state prosper, adding that the latter had ruined the state during its regime.
“Congress has nothing to do with Vyapam, they have nothing to do with the deaths. Congress had ruined Madhya Pradesh during its regime. Congress cannot see the state prospering, that is why they are demanding my resignation, this is not the first time they are saying this. This has been happening ever since I became chief minister. Their job is to level allegations against me, they are not able to tolerate Madhya Pradesh’s development ,” Chouhan told media persons.
Chouhan further said that his government was committed to bringing the culprits in the Vyapam scam before the law.
“I had ordered a probe into this case in 2013, the probe was elaborate and effective..If there was any flaw in the investigation, then, we are committed to find that out and bring the culprits before the law. The kind of investigation done by the STF has never been done before, I am not trying to defend. Whatever the facts are, the investigation will reveal them,” he said.
“I have written a letter to the high court requesting that Vyapam case be investigated by the CBI. The investigation by the STF under high court was going well. We trust our judicial system, high court and Supreme Court. But after the events of the past few days, after which an atmosphere of suspicion was created, I have decided to request the court to order a CBI inquiry. We will also request the Supreme Court that the case be handed over to the CBI,” he added.
The apex court is expected to deliver its verdict on July 9 on four petitions seeking a CBI probe in the high-profile scam. At least 48 people have died in this scam.
Under relentless opposition attack, Madhya Pradesh Government filed a plea in the High Court for a CBI probe in the controversial Vyapam Scam on Tuesday.
The next hearing on the government’s plea in the high court will be on July 20. (ANI)
