Bhopal: In Madhya Pradesh, particularly the State capital, all eyes this weekend have remained fixed on the next course of action by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) appointed by the Jabalpur High Court and the Special Task Force of Madhya Pradesh Police investigating the State Professional examination Board (PEB) scam as the High Court reportedly has directed the prosecuting agency to take appropriate action in case of a “high dignitary” linked with this case.
State Governor Ram Naresh Yadav should be finding himself against the wall as his former OSD and a close relative Dhanraj is in jail facing prosecution for alleged involvement in the PEB scam which revolves around massive irregularities in the pre-medical– PMT examinations — and recruitment of contractual teachers and other government staff. The name of the Governor’s son has also surfaced in this matter.
In these circumstances, it is being speculated that before the investigating agency places the status report in the High Court on Monday, the State Governor might be compelled to submit his resignation.
State chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will be in New Delhi today to discuss the PEB scam with the ruling BJP leadership.
