Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday alleged that the Vyapam scam is a ploy against the state as there are more flaws in other states' admission exams.
Speaking at 'Swadhinta Parv' event here, Chouhan said: "Few people have plotted to defame Madhya Pradesh. Madhya Pradesh that came out of BIMARU zone was denounced as murderers' state."
"There was no procedure for admission exams. We formed the procedure. We also made the procedure of Police admission transparent. Other states' admission exams have more flaws than Madhya Pradesh," he added.
Claiming that the system had been cleaned long ago, Chouhan stated that Madhya Pradesh has been defamed so much that residents are considered as frauds and the children of this state are doubted.
"This is a conspiracy and we will not let it succeed," he added.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday filed two fresh FIRs in the controversial Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh.
