Bhopal: The Opposition Congress in Madhya Pradesh on Thursday alleged that the BJP Government has hatched a "conspiracy" to hand over higher education segment to "mafia" in the state.

The Government's move to amend the Madhya Pradesh Private University Bill shows it has hatched a "conspiracy" to hand over higher education to "mafia", Leader of Opposition in Assembly Ajay Singh said in a statement here.

The haste with which the amendment Bill had been introduced in the Assembly created doubts about intention of the state administration, he said.

The Bill had been introduced merely as a formality and the Government had already given permission for opening private universities in Sagar and Satna, Ajay said.

On one hand, the Government was unable to prevent the de-recognition of ayurveda and medical colleges and on the other, it was advocating setting up of private universities in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress leader maintained.
