Veni Vidi Vyapam

I love the smell of conspiracy in the morning.

But we Indians have always been lightweight when it comes to a good conspiracy.

Scams are a dime a dozen.

The whole history of the Indian Anti National Congress involves looting money from India. Reading their history is pretty much reading the history of the whose who of corrupt.  The whole reason for all the regional parties is because the regional people felt left out from the corruption and wanted a piece of the action.

But when it comes to conspiracies, we have only a few – of course involving the Indian Anti National Congress.

Nothing comes between the Indian Anti National Congress and their obscene lust for money and power.

Sun rises in the east, rain falls and the Indian Anti National Congress lusts for power by hook and crook and any and every other underhand criminal way possible.

We all know Jawaharlal Nehru murdered Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and colluded with the British to kill Bhagat Singh

Taking a cue from her father, Indira Gandhi made a deal with the CIA and killed Lal Bahadur Shastri, Homi Jehangir Bhava and later her own son Sanjay Gandhi.

Then her son Rajiv Gandhi happily murdered a few thousand Sikhs.

And then there was Bhopal.

There are a few other conspiracies, but they are ancient and happened in India, when India wasn’t even India.



But for the last two, two and a half decades, there wasn’t a single hi-fi conspiracy to whet our appetites.

We just had scam after scam – fodder scam, Commonwealth Games scam, 3G scam, coal scam etc etc.


But rejoice people, we finally have a conspiracy worthy of being a conspiracy.

And no, not that supreme sillyass Modigate.

We have Vyapam.

The Vyapam scam is an admission and recruitment scam involving politicians, senior officials and businessmen in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB), popularly known by its Hindi acronym “Vyapam” (Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal), is a government body responsible for conducting several entrance tests in the state. These entrance exams are used for recruitment to government jobs and for admissions to educational institutes in the state. The scam involved a collusion of undeserving candidates, who bribed politicians and MPPEB officials through middlemen, to get high ranks in these entrance tests.

Cases of irregularities in these entrance tests had been reported since the mid-1990s, and the first FIR was filed in 2000. However, until 2009, such cases were not thought to be part of an organized ring. When major complaints surfaced in the pre-medical test (PMT) in 2009, the state government established a committee to investigate the matter. The commitee released its report in 2011, and over a hundred people were arrested by the police.

The sheer scale of the scam came to light in 2013, when the Indore police arrested 20 people who had come to impersonate candidates for PMT 2009. The interrogation of these people led to the arrest of Jagdish Sagar, the leader of an organized racket involved in the scam. The state government established a Special Task Force (STF) on 26 August 2013. Subsequent interrogations and arrests uncovered the involvement of several politicians, bureaucrats, MPPEB officials, racket leaders, middlemen, candidates and their parents in the scam. By June 2015, more than 2000 people had been arrested in connection with the scam. These included the state’s ex-education minister Laxmikant Sharma and over a hundred other politicians. In July 2015, the Supreme Court of India issued an order to transfer the case to the country’s premier investigating agency, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The beauty of Vyapam is that till now nobody knows the full extent of the heinosity and yet people are dying like flies. And every week there is a new death.

And all because of some cheating in exams. Come on people, cheating has been going on in examinations since the beginning of exams.

So stop dying/killing.

And enjoy the fun.

At most it will be a few months jail, a few thousand rupees’ fine.

And if you are a politician, then not even that.


But now its in the hands of CBI.

Who knows where all this will end up….maybe we will finally find out the mystery of Gudduda’s single testicle.
