Union Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh wants a CBI probe in Uttar Pradesh into the misappropriation of funds meant for building rural roads under the government's flagship programme, the Pradhan Mantri Grameen Sadak Yojana. Interestingly, the five roads where misappropriation has been detected are in Sultanpur district, and fall in Amethi, the parliamentary constituency of Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi.
