TMC to raise issue in House, says Mamata Banerjee
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. (Photo: PTI/File) Describing the spate of deaths linked to the Vyapam scam as cold-blooded murders, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said the Trinamul Congress would raise the issue during the upcoming Monsoon Session of Parliament and demanded a Supreme Court-monitored probe. The Trinamul Congress will raise its voice against Vyapam scam in Parliament. I strongly condemn the incident. It should be investigated under the monitoring of the Supreme Court, Ms Banerjee said here reacting to the scandal that has triggered an outrage. It is not merely a law and order issue. It is something bigger than that. So many killings have taken place. Many people are involved. It is cold-blooded murders, Ms Banerjee said. Asked if she would demand a CBI probe into the admission and recruitment scam, Ms Banerjee said that since she knew the fate of the CBI probes into Netai massacre, Nandigram firing and Tagores Nobel medallion theft, she would prefer an investigation to be monitored by the top court. The incident has crossed all limits. We want truth to come out, she said. TMC Rajya Sabha MP and national spokesperson Derek O Brien said it was appropriate that the Supreme Court took suo motu action and order an appropriate probe. We are deeply concerned over the series of deaths including those of journalists, educationists and others. In these circumstances we think it is appropriate that the Supreme Court takes suo motu action and orders an appropriate probe to be monitored by it. This is the only way the truth will come out, OBrien said in a statement.

Vyapam trouble dogs Shivraj as Cong bays for blood
THE Vyapam serial murder scams seem to have finally arrived in New Delhi. A CBI probe into the Vyapam admission scam in Madhya Pradesh was ruled out by the Centre on Monday as troubles mounted for chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan after a woman trainee sub-inspector recruited by the state board was found dead in a lake. Congress demanded the sacking of Chauhan following a spate of mysterious deaths connected to the admission and recruitment scam in the last two years that has rocked the BJP -ruled state even as the chief minister said it is "not fair" to link all such "unfortunate incidents" with the scandal. The BJP rallied behind Chauhan in the face of strident demands by the Congress for a CBI probe, saying the state government need not order it after the apex court rejected the plea of Congress leader Digvijay Singh in this regard. In a related development, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a petition seeking removal of MP governor Ram Naresh Yadav over his alleged involvement in the scandal. "SIT probe into the scam is on, and the government cannot direct the high court or the Supreme Court on the issue," Union home minister Rajnath Singh told reporters in Jhabua in MP. Asked why the state government was avoiding a CBI probe, Singh said the high court and the apex court had already rejected a PIL in this regard. "There is no point in handing over the ongoing probe to CBI at this juncture," he said. "If the Supreme Court or the high court feels that the probe is not perfect to the extent it should be, then it will give directions and the government will immediately accept it and hand over the matter to the CBI," the home minister added. Whistleblower Ashish Chaturvedi, 26, claimed that there was a grave threat to his life and accused Chouhan of being "directly involved" in the scam, a charge rubbished by the CM. Adding to the string of deaths in the past two days, the body of trainee sub-inspector Anamika Sikarwar (25) was found in a lake adjacent to the Police Training Academy at Sagar district headquarters in the state. It came after the unexplained death of journalist Akshay Singh who was covering Vyapam scam in Jhabua, while Jabalpur Medical College dean Arun Sharma, probing fake examinees, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a hotel at Dwarka in south-west Delhi on Sunday. Sagar city superintendent of police Gautam Solanki said they suspect Anamika's death to be a case of suicide, a claim promptly dismissed by the Congress. Congress, which has sought a Supreme Court-monitored CBI probe, stepped up its attack on Chouhan, demanding that he be sacked to allow an impartial investigation and said that he cannot escape responsibility for "45 deaths" of people having some connection with the issue. "Shivraj Singh Chouhan should be sacked and an impartial probe should be conducted in the Vyapam scam," Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said in New Delhi. The Congress, Left and AAP also brought in prime minister Narendra Modi in the line of fire, questioning his silence on the "sordid affair". Former Union home minister P Chidambaram insisted that Madhya Pradesh government recommend a CBI investigation before the "next unnatural death", stressing the "buck stops with the executive". West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, who was said to be warming up to the prime minister, "condemned" the deaths and said her party TMC will raise the issue in Parliament. "It is not merely a law and order issue. It is something bigger than that. So many killings have taken place. Many people are involved. It is cold-blooded murders," Banerjee, also the Trinamool Congress chief, said in Kolkata. BJP leaders have claimed that since the registration of the FIR in July 2013, over 55 cases have been lodged and close to 2000 of the 2500 accused arrested in various Vyapam scam cases.

The video footage of dying declaration, which went viral on news channels and social media, showed Singh saying, "Why did they have to burn me? If the minister and his goons had a grudge, they could have beaten me instead of pouring kerosene and burning me." The journalist had invited Vermas ire by posting reports on Facebook about illegal mining activities and land grabbing against the minister. A public interest litigation (PIL) has also been filed in the Allahabad High Court seeking directions for CBI probe and strict action against erring persons. The Uttar Pradesh government has announced an aid of Rs 30 lakh, two government jobs and an "impartial" probe into the killing of the journalist.

Pallavi Joshi and Jahnu Barua quit FTII, lend support to stir
Actress Pallavi Joshi and national award-winning filmmaker Jahnu Barua have resigned as members of the Film and Television Institute of India Society expressing their reservations on being part of it. Their resignations came in the wake of the agitation by the students of FTII demanding removal of small screen actor Gajendra Chauhan as chairman of the institute. Pledging her support to the agitation by the students, Ms Joshi said, There is no point in continuing as member of the FTII Society if the students with whom I wanted to interact as future prospects of the film industry, are unhappy. Describing her decision as a principled stand, she said she put in her letter dissociating herself from the body three days ago. Asked if she would reconsider her decision on request from authorities concerned, she said, I am firm on my stand supporting the students demands. I do not want to see the students of this premier institute joining the film industry unsatisfactorily with half-baked knowledge, Ms Joshi said. Mr Barua, who is an alumnus of the FTII, said he had shown his reservations of not being a part of the institute for a long time. I had conveyed my resignation to the director of FTII through a mail. I had been showing my unwillingness for a long time due to the protest. I dont want to be in it anymore, he said. But he said he will always extend his help to the government. I have always been assisting government on the matter of FTII. I shall continue to do so. Its my duty to assist because I am emotionally attached to it, Mr Barua said. The nomination of Mr Barua, Ms Joshi and other members to the FTII Society was announced by the information and broadcasting ministry last month. The agitation, which has received the support of many leading personalities of Indian cinema, entered the 25th day on Monday with students boycotting the academic work after failure of their talks with information and broadcasting minister Arun Jaitley in New Delhi last week.
