With the Vyapam scam hitting the credibility of his government, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Wednesday slammed Congress for attempting to undermine his reputation by accusing him of involvement in the teachers recruitment scam in the state.
Hitting out at the Congress party, the Chief Minister said, “There have been continuous efforts by Congress to defame my government by making false allegations.”
“I requested the Hon’ble Speaker to take Congress’s motion on Vyapam for discussion itself. As soon as I proposed a discussion on the matter, the opposition tried to run away from it,” Chouhan said.
The BJP leader also said that he has provided a clean and corruption-free governance in his state so the people will understand who is lying and who is speaking the truth.
“Why wait for tomorrow or any other day. We have done our best to book the guilty and cleanse the system. People must know who is lying,” he tweeted.
The reactions from the MP Chief Minister came in view of serious allegations made by the Congress party, which accused him and his wife Sadhana Singh of being involved in the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam.
Several political parties, including the CPI-M, had termed the scam as one of the worst scams in the history of Madhya Pradesh.
