The Supreme Court Friday sought replies from the Centre and Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav on a PIL seeking his removal over his alleged involvement in the Vyapam scam, being probed by the CBI.

A bench led by Chief Justice of India H L Dattu issued notices also to the state government and sought replies from all the parties in three weeks on a petition filed by activist Sanjay Shukla.

“Lay down guidelines for removal/withdrawal of pleasure of the President in cases of physical or mental disability, acts of corruption or moral turpitude or behaviour unbecoming of a Governor,” urged the PIL, adding that the constitutional post of ‘governor’ ought to be above suspicion and must possess a pristine antecedent.

The plea, filed through advocates Sumeer Sodhi and Varun Tankha, said since there is inaction on the part of the Council of Ministers in seeking the governor’s removal, this court ought to interfere and lay down the guidelines to be followed in cases where there are serious allegations against a constitutional functionary of a state.

It argued that the immunity to the governor under Article 361 of the Constitution cannot be said to be absolute in terms of protection where cognisable offences are made out and evidence are there for his involvement in a multi-crore admissions and recruitment scam.

This is the second notice to MP Governor Yadav by the apex court in connection with the Vyapam scam.
