New Delhi: The Delhi Government on Saturday
asked all its departments named in the Shunglu Committee
report to file their response pertaining to the allegations of
irregularities brought by the panel.
Chief Secretary PK Tripathi this evening held a
meeting of top officials of various departments and asked them
to submit their response soon.
Senior officials, including Principal Secretary, PWD,
Nutan Guha Biswas, Special Secretary to the Chief Minister
Keshab Chandra and Delhi Jal Board CEO Ramesh Negi attended
the meeting, official sources said.
The Prime Minister`s Office earlier this month had
referred the Shunglu Committee findings on alleged
irregularities by certain departments of the Delhi government
to the Home Ministry for further action.
The Home Ministry is likely to seek reply from Lt
Governor Tejendra Khanna, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and
other agencies concerned, which were held responsible by the
panel for lack of oversight and decisions that led to cost
escalation in the last year`s Commonwealth Games.
The administration of Delhi, being a Union Territory,
comes under the control of Home Ministry.
Rejecting the Shunglu Committee report, the Delhi
government had termed the findings as a "product of paranoia"
which is "full of contradictions" and "anomalies".
