New Delhi: Demanding a thorough probe into
Shunglu Committee report, the BJP on Sunday asked Home Minister P
Chidambaram to direct the CBI to interrogate all those
allegedly involved in the Commonwealth Games scam, including
Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dixit.
Protesting in large numbers at Jantar Mantar, BJP
workers led by Delhi BJP chief Vijender Gupta appealed to the
Home minister to allow the CBI to "seize all documents
pertaining to forgery and siphoning of funds at the earliest"
to avoid further tampering of evidence.
"The Delhi Government has mismanaged public money worth
Rs 25,000 crore during Commonwealth Games, and we want an
answer from Dikshit on the allegations and charges put on her
government in third report by the Shunglu Committee," senior
BJP leader Jagdish Mukhi said.
BJP leaders also asked the CBI "not to adopt the policy
of `pick and choose` while investigating the matter".
They claimed that Dikshit has no right to trash the
Shunglu Committee report, as the panel was formed by Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh.
Besides other agencies, the Shunglu panel had blamed
Dikshit-led government for alleged bunglings in various Games
The city government had rejected all the findings of the
panel and instead accused it of deliberately choosing to adopt
a logic of "convenience" in finding corruption in every policy
and every tender of the government.
