ABVP demands inquiry into scholarship scam

Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, October 14

The Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) Punjab called for an immediate and impartial enquiry against Social Welfare Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot, who was given a clean chit in the multi-crore SC post-Matric scholarship scam in the state recently.

The ABVP submitted a memorandum to the Punjab Governor and demanded resignation of Dharamsot. The ABVP state joint secretary, Diksha, said, "An additional chief secretary of the department concerned exposes the whole trail of corruption in this particular scholarship scheme, which is around Rs64 crore."

"The scheme is a platform to provide quality education to students. Anti-Dalit and anti-education face of this government has been exposed by this scam as they don't want students to get good education and have a better future," Diksha added.

The ABVP Chandigarh secretary, Ajay Sood, said, "The government should conduct an open investigation under the supervision of a sitting High Court judge. Until then Dharamsot should resign."
