New Delhi: The BJP on Tuesday stepped up its
attack on Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit demanding her removal
and ordering a CBI probe into CWG spendings by city government
following the Shunglu Committee report which blamed her for
irregularities in certain Games projects.
The party held a protest demonstration near Jantar
Mantar demanding Dikshit`s sacking and slammed her for
rejecting the findings of the Prime Minister-appointed panel.
"The Shunglu Committee has held Dikshit responsible
for delays and losses in the Games project. She should have
resigned immediately after the panel filed its report," senior
BJP leader VK Malhotra said, addressing the gathering.
"Sheila Dikshit must resign from her post and a CBI
probe should be ordered into all the CWG spendings by the
Delhi Government," he added.
Echoing the views of Malhotra, BJP national
spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain accused the Centre of trying to
shield the Delhi government and asked it to take strict action
against all those indicted by the high-level panel.
Hussain also slammed Dikshit for "thrashing" the
report and said how could she reject the findings of the panel
which was set up by the Prime Minister to probe the CWG
