New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday evening met President Pranab Mukherjee after mounting demands for the removal of Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav in the wake of Vyapam scam.

There has been demand for the removal of the Governor over his alleged links to the scam but the Madhya Pradesh High Court had quashed an FIR against him on grounds of constitutional immunity.

However, the Supreme Court today issued notice to the Governor, the Centre and the state governor on the demand for his removal without commenting on demands that he should demit office.
