Ramesh, who wrote letters to the Uttar Pradesh government, including Mayawati, favouring a CBI inquiry into the matter, said the Centre could not conduct a CBI probe into the matter without the concurrence of the state government.
He said the state quality monitor appointed by the Mayawati government found irregularities in implementation of MGNREGS in some districts.
