Beohari: Resurrecting the Professional Examination Board inconsistencies whose ominous spectre has loomed over Madhya Pradesh’s political sphere for years, erstwhile Congress president Rahul Gandhi alleged on Tuesday that 40 individuals were murdered in cold blood for covering up the scam that resulted in the ruination of one crore youths’ careers.

Sexual assaults are perpetrated every passing day against girls and women. In the state capital, a girl was raped, and when her brother attempted to save his hapless sibling, he was slain in the presence of law enforcement authorities! ”

“While preparing this speech, I thought let us observe what work they are accomplishing. I shall furnish examples. Deceased people are provided ‘medical treatment’ and that serves as a conduit for misappropriation of funds. That does not happen anywhere else in India. Even the Mahakal Corridor (in the ancient holy city of Ujjain) was not spared corruption.
Irregularities were perpetrated vis-à-vis school uniforms and the Mid-Day Meal Scheme. MBBS seats were sold, and a bribe of Rs 15 lakh is to be paid for assuming the mantle of patwari. The GST on pesticides is a whopping 12 percent. Privatisation and the contractual system rule the roost,” he added.
