New Delhi: BJP leader Vijay Goel on Saturday
demanded the resignation of Delhi Chief Minister Sheila
Dikshit claiming that the remarks of Sports Minister M S Gill
on Yamuna has proved that funds have been "bungled" in the
cleaning of the river.
"Gill`s comment clearly proves that the Centre too finds
that Yamuna funds have been bungled by her government. Dikshit
should resign," Goel told reporters here.

Gill yesterday said "having turned into a drain, Yamuna
is a horror today. With such a high level of pollution we
might have to prevent all our foreign visitors from going near
the river".

Goel also charged that the work for the Commonwealth
Games-related projects were started late to make a ground for
"corruption".
He also alleged that the tender for tableau of the Games
for the Republic Day parade was given to a company which did
not have even one year experience in designing a model for the
event.
