New Delhi: Suspended Congress MP Suresh Kalmadi was put on roster duty by the party in the Budget session of Parliament which began on Monday, but the CPP later dubbed the lapse as a "clerical error."
Party Chief Whip Girija Vyas had sent the circular about roster duty to party MPs including Kalmadi asking them to ensure good presence at all times in Parliament.
Later, Vyas termed the mistake as "clerical error". Congress had in April last year suspended Kalamdi from the party soon after the arrest of the Lok Sabha member from Pune in connection with alleged irregularities in the conduct of the Commonwealth Games.

Kalmadi was formerly Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chairman. The Games were the biggest international sporting event which India hosted.
