Now, MP may bar CBI from prob­ing in state

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

Af­ter Ch­hat­tis­garh, the first Con­gress-led state to re­voke per­mis­sion to CBI to probe cases in the state, Mad­hya Pradesh may join the cho­rus soon. State Con­gress lead­ers and cabi­net min­is­ters be­lieve that the pre­mier in­ves­ti­gat­ing agency is be­ing mis­used and has lost its iden­tity as ‘neu­tral and un­bi­ased’. They have left the is­sue to chief min­is­ter Ka­mal Nath for a fi­nal call. State home min­is­ter Bala Bachchan fu­elled spec­u­la­tions on Satur­day when he said CBI has lost its sig­nif­i­cance af­ter the re­cent squab­ble within the or­gan­i­sa­tion. “This is a highly sen­si­tive mat­ter. I would dis­cuss with chief min­is­ter Ka­mal Nath ji whether to re­voke per­mis­sion to CBI to probe in Mad­hya Pradesh,” Bachchan had told re­porters at a func­tion here. How­ever, the MP home de­part­ment is not aware of any such de­ci­sion.
