MP Govt Plans to Rename Vyapam


Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh government will take the ordinance route to rechristen and overhaul the tainted examination and recruitment agency, Vyapam, after it failed to bring a bill in the monsoon session of the state assembly, which lasted all of three days. Ruckus over the Vyapam scam forced the Speaker to adjourn the assembly sine die on Wednesday.

Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan wants to change Madhya Pradesh Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal, better known as Vyapam, to MP Pravesh Evam Bharti Pariksha Mandal as Vyapam has become a dirty word. However, Chouhan ran into trouble at a meeting of senior ministers that he had called on Monday to discuss the draft bill for rechristening Vyapam, sources said.
