New Delhi: facing intense Opposition criticism over Vyapam scam related deaths, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan arrived here on Wednesday to hold talks with the BJP central leadership.
Upon his arrival, he refused to speak on the Vyapam scam, merely saying that he is in town to take part in the Vishwa Hindi Sammelan.
"I am going to take part in the Vishwa Hindi Sammelan. After that, I will go to the Madhya Pradesh Bhavan," he said.
Chouhan has been facing the heat over the scam after a number of accused and witnesses connected with the case reportedly died under mysterious circumstances.
As many as 46 people associated with the scam as accused or witnesses have died under mysterious circumstances, according to latest reports.
Over the past week, a doctor related to the employment scam, a medical college dean and journalist Akshay Singh were also found dead.
