BHOPAL: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh today demanded a CBI enquiry into the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam in which even appointments made during his tenure as the Chief Minister could be covered.     

"Let there be an enquiry by CBI into the MPPEB scam and (also) appointments made during my rule," he said, adding he was prepared to go to jail if any charge was proved against him.     

Singh was replying to a question on Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's statement that all appointments made since 1993 would be enquired into.     

The Congress leader, who was Chief Minister from 1993 to 2003, said he wanted the enquiry into all of this should be done by CBI.     

He said the MPPEB scam has now caught attention at the national level and all eyes were on how it would be dealt by the High Court and the STF.    

 Singh said Union Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti had once even pointed out that the MPPEB scam was bigger than the fodder scam of Bihar.     

He advised Chouhan not to get emotional about the charges being made against him in connection with the MPPEB scam.     

He said it was not correct on Chouhan's part to claim that none of his relatives was involved in any wrong-doing and added that Congress had sufficient proof to show their involvement.     

The Congress General Secretary said it was strange that the hearing in the MPPEB scam was being conducted in the chamber of the Chief Justice of the Madhya Pradesh High Court and demanded that it should be held in public.     

"I will write a letter about this to the Chief Justice tomorrow," he said.
