Lucknow: In a startling revelation that may land many political heavyweights in trouble, the BJP has vocally said that another NRHM scam, similar to that of  UP has been unearthed in Rajasthan in which sons of  Union Home Minister Chidambaram and Union Overseas Affairs Minister Vayalar Ravi and brother of Mayawati have been allegedly involved.

The saffron brigade has even demanded a CBI probe into the alleged involvement of the sons of high-profile ministers.

BJP national secretary Kirit Somaiya alleged that large-scale corruption on the lines of NRHM scam in Uttar Pradesh has also emerged in Rajasthan. Somaiya said that the funds that were released by the Centre were misused in Rajasthan and Mumbai alleging that Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi is tight lipped on the issue.

Chidambaram’s son Karti along with Vayalar Ravi’s son Ravi Krushna and sons of former Congress MPs are responsible for the NRHM scam, he added.

Soumya said, “Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati's brother Anand Kumar is also an owner of a Carrier company which not only operates internationally but is also responsible for maintenance and servicing of airlines. Huge amount of money is required for registration of such a company. This company is registered in the name of Mayawati’s brother and his wife.”

The General Secretary further said, “Certain relatives of UP Chief Minister Mayawati got a company registered in their name. The documents in this regard have already been sent to Cabinet Secretary Shashank Shekhar Singh and principal secretary CM Navneet Sehgal and is expected like other cases, they would give a clarification on behalf of Mayawati.”
