Indian Youth Congress (IYC) also reiterated Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to resign from the post.
“Dreams of job aspirants were toyed with in Madhya Pradesh. Somebody wanted to be doctor, engineer, management trainee, police constable, etc. Their dreams have been toyed with. Those who are associated with the scam be sent to jail.
