CBI sources said BSP supremo Mayawati who was at the helm of affairs in UP during 2007-12 during which NRHM misappropriation is alleged, will be called for questioning in connection with the case.

BSP supremo Mayawati may soon face heat from the CBI, which is preparing to question her in connection with the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) scam.

Sources in the central agency said Mayawati would be questioned as she was the CM of Uttar Pradesh when the scam, allegedly involving misappropriation of over Rs 10,000 crore, took place.

Mayawati would also be questioned over her government’s May 5, 2010, decision to separate the health and family welfare ministries and appoint two chief medical officers in each district for each of the ministries, said the sources.

In July 2010, the Union health and family welfare ministry had written to the state government, objecting to the bifurcation of the ministry, but the Mayawati government allegedly ignored it.
