New Delhi: Keeping up the pressure on
Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, the BJP on Tuesday demanded
her "immediate arrest" on the basis of the Shunglu Committee
report which blamed her for alleged irregularities in certain
CWG projects.

"We demand immediate arrest of Dikshit. She should
have been arrested immediately after found guilty by Shunglu
Committee," Delhi BJP chief Vijender Gupta said, addressing a
party rally organised to demand action against Dikshit.

Alleging Dikshit`s involvement in CWG bunglings, Gupta
said his party will intensify its agitation if "visible
action" was not taken against her.

Slamming Dikshit for rejecting findings of the Shunglu
Committee, Gupta alleged that by trashing the report, the
Chief Minister has challenged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
who had appointed the probe panel.

"Prime Minister had appointed him as the Chairman of
the Committee for impartial enquiry. By rejecting the Shunglu
report, she has actually challenged the Prime Minister," Gupta
said at the rally attended by hundreds of BJP supporters.

The city government had rejected the findings of the
panel as a "product of paranoia".
