The controversy over multi-layered MPPEB scam brought an abrupt end to the Budget session of Madhya Pradesh Assembly on Thursday, 29 days ahead of its schedule.
The session, earlier scheduled for February 18 – March 27, had started under the shadow of allegations against Governor Ram Naresh Yadav, against whom an FIR was eventually lodged Tuesday for his alleged role in the examination and recruitment scam.
Opposition Congress had also accused Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan of ordering manipulation of evidence to save him and implicate his rivals.
