Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh government has denied permission to former state Finance Minister Raghavji to have a government school teacher as his Personal Assistant (PA).
Official sources said that Raghavji, who was charged with sodomy spent 39 days in jail and on his release, he wanted a 38-year-old school teacher from Vidisha, Naresh Raghuvanshi be appointed as his PA.
Raghavji met the Vidisha District Collector in this connection soon after his release but he refused to help the former minister.
According to sources, the senior MLA also met the principal secretary of the General Administration Department (GAD) K Suresh yesterday and urged him to issue orders appointing Raghuvanshi as his PA.
They said Raghavji tried to persuade Suresh for about half-an-hour but failed.
