New Delhi: Delhi BJP on Saturday demanded an explanation from L-G Najeeb Jung over the disappearance of files related to misappropriation of Rs 700 crore SC/ST fund in Commonwealth Games two years ago.

"It is quite surprising that the file, which was called for by the Central Home Ministry and the Central Social Welfare Ministry for about two years back, remained suppressed firstly by Sheila Dikshit-led Government, thereafter by Arvind Kejriwal-led Government," Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay said.

He said it clearly indicates that this fund was certainly misappropriated, and therefore this file was suppressed and after warning by BJP, the Lt Governor and officers had to bring out the file under pressure.

"Besides forwarding the file to the Home Ministry, L-G should also clarify to the people of Delhi that why Congress Government and Arvind Kejriwal's Government and after that, the bureaucrats did not take any action over this file," the Delhi BJP chief said.
