BHOPAL: The tussle between the BJP and Opposition Congress over the latter’s demand for a CBI probe into the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board(MPPEB) scam has turned into a personal fight between Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Leader of the Opposition Satyadev Katare.
And the government has served a legal notice to Satyadev’s wife, Meera Katare, stating that her fitness centre was situated on government land that could be used only for residential purposes.
The notice asked Meera to give an explanation along with the relevant documents. The fitness centre has been functioning for the last two years and is managed by Katares’ two sons.
Earlier on Thursday, Chouhan said in the Assembly that the Congress was hitting him below the belt. He then claimed it was under his rule that the discrepancies in the MPPEB were corrected. “The Congress is playing a dirty game. During the previous regime , appointments were made according to the wishes of Congress leaders and I have only tried to correct the irregularities. For the last many days, the Opposition has been levelling baseless allegations against me. They have awakened a sleeping lion. I am not a wicket which can be uprooted. If they think that they can bowl me out, they are mistaken. Just like Angad, I will stay and run my government,” Chouhan said. Chouhan also accused Congress leaders of having appointed their relatives in various government posts when Digvijay Singh was CM. “They are scared to hear what I have to say about the discrepancies that took place during their time. Now I will not tolerate any such attacks and we’ll bring out the irregularities that were done when they were in power,” he said.
