The Vyapam scam whistleblower has lashed out at Congress President Rahul Gandhi for not giving him a ticket for the upcoming elections in Madhya Pradesh
“I have not been given a ticket to fight elections even though Rahul Gandhi had assured me of it. It was only because of me that Congress’s Sanjeev Saxena, who is also a Vyapam accused, was not given a ticket,” Dr Anand Rai said.
Earlier, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that he will file a defamation suit against Congress president Rahul Gandhi for alleging involvement of his family in the Vyapam scam and Panama papers cases.
During his two-day visit to the poll-bound state, the Congress chief had hit out at the Narendra Modi government at the Centre and the Shivraj Singh Chouhan regime in Madhya Pradesh, alleging failures on several fronts, including jobs and corruption.
He had claimed that the name of the son of ‘mamaji’, a chief minister, had figured in the Panama Papers but no action was taken against him.
Though Gandhi did not specifically identify the CM, he was possibly referring to Chouhan because he is popularly known as ‘mamaji’.
“On one side, you have the watchman (apparently referring to Modi), on the other side you have ‘ mamaji ‘. The name of the son of ‘ mamaji ‘ figured in Panama Papers) Udhar Chowkidar, Idhar Mamaji. Mamaji ke jo bte hai, Panama Papers me unka naam nikalta hai,” Gandhi said.
