MP gajab hai, sabse ajab hai (MP is amazing, different from all)’. So went the lyrics of a TV spot by the MP Tourism Development Corporation. The song’s back again on people’s lips as the governor and CM of the state get singed with all­e­gations of involvement in a recruitment scam.

Around 1,800 people, including an ips officer and many top doctors, are in pri­son as accused in what is called the Vyapam scam, derived from the Hindi acronym for the MP Professional Exa­mination Board. Another 300 are yet to be arrested, the special task force (STF) has told the high court. It is, however, the FIR lodged against Governor Ram Naresh Yadav that is creating a stir. Yadav has been booked under Section 420 of the IPC and the Prevention of Corruption Act, the charge being that he recommen­ded names of three candidates for rec­ruitment as forest guards and charged Rs 4 lakh each from them. The recruitment examination was conducted by the Vyavasayik Pariksha Mandal.
