Bhopal: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat wrapped up his 4-day visit to the city on Monday with the Congress needling him on the Vyapam scam that has hit the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh.
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who is facing the heat of the scam, BJP vice president in-charge of the state Vinay Sahasrabuddhe and the party's state organising secretary Arvind Menon called on Bhagwat separately and are understood to have discussed the Vyapam scandal yesterday.
The state Congress's chief spokesman K K Mishra shot off a letter to Bhagwat taking pot-shots at him over the controversy.
"My letter asks Bhagwat why he was protecting people involved in the Vyapam scam. RSS talks about high moral values and it is time for him to act against the corrupt BJP government in Madhya Pradesh," Mishra told PTI.
The letter says,"Your visit comes at a time when the BJP government, which is under your guidance and control, is being talked about nationally and internationally over the greatest scam of the continent."
Taking a jibe at the Sangh, Mishra's letter says,"Sangh and BJP have always spoken of probity in politics and raised issues of corruption, degradation in politics, terrorism and black money stashed abroad. But, on the contrary, especially in MP, the government presents a picture totally opposite of what the saffron family preaches. Why and for what are these things happening?"
