Stepping up his attack on the ruling BSP in Uttar Pradesh over the Chief Medical Officer murder issue, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Tuesday said his party will "expose" the Mayawati government, while making a fresh demand for a Central Bureau of Investigation probe into the incident.

"We will expose the Mayawati government. This corruption trail is also reaching her door...Mayawati should order a CBI inquiry into the CMO murder case," he said.

There have been three murders related to the office of Lucknow CMO.  

Mayawati has expelled two ministers saying they committed mistakes. But it was never told what those mistakes were," Digivijay told mediapersons in New Delhi after a meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

A party delegation from UP led by Digvijay met the Prime Minister and apprised him of the situation in the state. Digvijay said corruption is at its peak in UP and his party will expose the menace by launching campaigns in every district of the state.

The delegation, which included Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi, Congress Legislative Party leader Pramod Tewari and Indian National Trade Union representatives, met the Prime Minister to request him to reconsider the Cabinet decision to sell Scooter India Limited.

The Cabinet on May 25 had said the government will disinvest its 95 per cent share in Scooter India limited, which is going in loss since 2002.

Digvijay also asked why the UP government is not lodging cases against the two ministers if it is clear that they have committed irregularities.

"A scam has also come to fore in Sonbhadra district of the state. In one district, a scam worth Rs 300 crore has been exposed. It was said that both concerned block development officers will be suspended and first information reports will be registered but neither of the two happened," he claimed.

Even media people are being arrested in UP.

"The situation is worrisome," the Congress leader said. Meanwhile, Joshi said the Prime Minister has assured the delegation that he will reconsider the decision on Scooter India.
