Congress leader Shashi Tharoor tweeted on the issue saying that I spoke to Union Minister Jitendra Singh on this issue today. He has ordered the CBI inquiry into the matter.
Spoke to @DrJitendraSingh in Parliament today. He has agreed to a CBI inquiry on all the issues raised by the students protesting the SSC-CGL Mains papers (leak, conduct of exams etc). I thank him for his willingness to listen to these legitimate demands w/an open mind. #sscscam
