Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh governor Ram Naresh Yadav may soon resign after addressing the Budget session today. He is believed to be taking this step after his son's name appeared in a charge sheet in MP Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam which is also popularly known as Vyapam scam in MP.
Earlier this month on February 9, the governor's son, Shailesh Yadav's name sprung up in the contract teacher's recruitment scam.
According to a report published in Times of India, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan visited Raj Bhavan on Sunday and requested the governor to address the Budget session before taking any decision.
On the other hand, the governor has refrained from giving any formal statement in this context. His office informed media that he is not talking to anyone and he would get back if he wants.
Leader of Opposition Satya Deo Katare also said, "Had I been in his place, I would have resigned." Similar response was received from former leader of opposition, Ajay Singh also.
AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh even went on to comment, “"As you sow, so shall you reap” for the governor in distress.
The Congress is known to be mounting pressure on the governor on “moral grounds” so that it can target chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
Digvijay Singh, former union ministers Jyotiraditya Raje Scindia, Kamal Nath and Suresh Pachauri also addressed a press conference attacking Chouhan on Monday.
Interestingly, Yadav was the only governor who was not disturbed when Narendra Modi took charge as a Prime Minister and most of the governors having Congress background were being replaced.
