CBI launches preliminary investigation into Mayawati-era UPPSC scam

The favoured candidates of the UPPSC selection of over 250 additional secretaries are said to be close to the government officials and also to elected representatives of the then BSP-led UP government.

Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati has landed in fresh troubles, as the Central Bureau of Investigation has initiated a probe into alleged irregularities in the conduct of Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission exam, during her stint as Chief Minister. The investigation has been set up by the incumbent state government of UP as per direction by the Central government.

UPPSC is a state agency in Uttar Pradesh, to look after Civil Services Examination for an entry-level appointment, to state’s civil services.

The preliminary investigation will look into serious allegations against the unidentified government officials, including that of UPPSC. They are suspected to have appointed candidates for 250 additional private secretaries, who were allegedly not eligible for the post. It is also alleged that some of the candidates appointed as additional private secretaries, did not even fulfill the basic minimum eligibility.

The favoured candidates are said to be close to the government officials and also to elected representatives of the then BSP-led UP government. After examing documents and conducting interrogation with alleged officials, CBI will lodge an FIR in the case.

The Enforcement Directorate, last month, had conducted raids at multiple locations in Lucknow in connection with the Rs. 1400 crores Memorial Scam under the Mayawati government between 2002 and 2007.

BSP will fight on 38 seats, SP in 37 and Ajit Singh’s Rashtriya Lok Dal will contest on three seats.
