Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Thursday (July 9) welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court for a CBI probe into all Vyapam scam cases and alleged deaths related to it, saying the country’s faith in judiciary has increased. “With this decision, the faith of the country in judiciary has increased. We are thankful to the Supreme Court,” he told reporters in Delhi. The apex court’s decision came after it heard a batch of petitions, including one filed by Singh, seeking a CBI probe into all cases arising out of the Vyapam admission and recruitment scam. Taking a dig at Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, he said, “Thank God…God has now given him (Shivraj) wisdom…Both Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Shivraj Singh Chouhan have had to take a U-turn.” Chouhan had initially washed his hand off a CBI probe, saying it was in the hands of the Madhya Pradesh High Court. Singh said it is the first time when corrupt politicians, bureaucrats and police officers, along with middlemen, have cheated lakhs of students. “Students who were made to believe that money was the only way to get admission to higher education in the state are behind bars but those who took the bribe are roaming free. These arrested students should be made government witness so that they can pinpoint the corrupt people,” the Congress leader said. A bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu clarified that all cases will be transferred to CBI from Monday and the agency will file its report before it on July 24.
