Broadcast Editors’ Association (BEA) General Secretary NK Singh on Monday said the Special Task Force (STF) personnel who are investigating the Vyapam scam are state government employees and their transfers and postings hinge on the sweet will of the Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led dispensation.
“It is true that the High Court is monitoring the case, but the case is being investigated by the STF. The STF guys are state government employees; their transfer, posting, promotion, everything hinges on the sweet will of the state government,” said Singh.
Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court had agreed to hear a petition against Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav to ensure a fair inquiry in the Vyapam scam.
The matter is scheduled to be heard on July 9.
The Congress party, meanwhile, has asked for the removal of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan from his post.
