BJP doesn’t regret Vyapam, only 2000 cases thought to be corrupt: MP BJP chief


BJP’s Madhya Pradesh president Nand Kumar Chauhan has said that his party had no regrets on Vyapam scam as allegations of corruption were only against 2000 of seven lakh admissions.

He said, “Out of seven lakh admissions, only 2000 people were wrongfully admitted and 31 people died. There’s no regret on the Vyapam scam.”

Chauhan also said that the chief minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan was as clean as holy Ganga and he would emerge innocent from this scam soon.

“The Chief Minister is as holy as the river Ganga and the CBI probe will prove it. All attempts of the Congress to defame Chouhan will ultimately lead to its further downfall in the state. BJP will form the government in Madhya Pradesh for a record fourth consecutive term in 2018 under the leadership of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan,” he was quoted by PTI as saying.

As many as 48 people related to Vyapam has lost their lives in mysterious circumstances. Not too long ago, a journalist and the head of Jabalpur’s NS Medical college were found dead in Madhya Pradesh and Delhi respectively.

Last week, Supreme Court ordered a CBI inquiry into the trail of deaths related to Vyapam.

The Vyapam scam is a huge admission and recruitment scandal involving politicians, bureaucrats and middlemen. Several politicians, including former state Education Minister Laxmikant Sharma, a host of officials and aspirants have been arrested in the case.
