Bhopal, Feb 25: Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav finally stepped down from his post after his name cropped in the Vyapam scam. He was reportedly asked by the Union Home Ministry to quit.

Yadav was under pressure after he came under the scanner over his alleged involvement in the exam scam.

Even an FIR has been registered against him by the Special Task Force probing the case. He is accused of receiving money from the candidates who applied for the post of Forest Guards in 2013. He was booked for misusing his power and position in the recruitment process.

Meanwhile, Congress attacked chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan alleging his involvement in the scam. Congress leader Digvijay Singh has submitted a pen drive that contained evidence relating to the case to the Special Investigation Team (SIT).

Vyapam, the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board, conducts the exams for various posts in the government departments. According to the complaints, the examinations for the posts like medical officers, teachers, and police constables were illegal as candidates had allegedly given bribes to the political leaders and government officials to get the job without appearing the exam.
