Likening the Uttar Pradesh teacher recruitment scam to the Madhya Pradesh’s Vyapam scam, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Monday slammed the state government, alleging that the diaries recovered from the racketeers show the involvement of many high profile people in the scam.
“The 69,000 teacher recruitment scam is UP’s Vyapam scam. This is not an ordinary case. Students’ names in the diaries, money transactions, large manipulation of examination centres, involvement of racket in these wrongdoings – show that its wires are connected at many places,” she said in a tweet in Hindi.”
Priyanka Gandhi also warned the government if justice is not delivered to students then the party will reply through a movement.
The recruitment examination was held on January 6, 2019 and its result was declared on May 12 this year.
The Vyapam scam of Madhya Pradesh under BJP led government refers to irregularities in exams held by the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board for admission in professional courses and state services.
Priyanka Gandhi, who is also the in-charge of the eastern Uttar Pradesh, slammed the government over the FIR against journalists in Fatehpur district.
