Claiming that she had no connection with the scam, Mayawati, a former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, at the same time said the CBI was free to investigate her and that she would not be cowed down.
Questioning the timing of the CBI investigation against her, she said the move against her was an attempt to 'demoralise' her party and divert attention from the 'failure' of the government to fulfill its promises made to the people.
"I have no connection with the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) scam. BJP, which is trying to use CBI, should give up such tactics as such attempt have cost them dearly earlier," she said.
CBI Director Anil Sinha said the agency will proceed as per requirement in the NRHM scam probe.
The BSP supremo claimed that the decision to question her four years after the scam came to light only reeks of political vendetta.

Mayawati said such tactics of misleading the people will not help the BJP in any way.
"I do not succumb to pressure, I do not bend," she said. "It is possible that the high command of the BJP is not aware of the move of these has to be probed," she added.
