New Delhi: Trashing the findings of the
Shunglu Committee, which looked into alleged irregularities
in Commonwealth Games projects, the CPWD on Tuesday said the panel
report is "one-sided and lacks engineering perception".

"Shunglu committee report is one sided...that is not the
whole perception of engineering activity. It lacks engineering
perception," Director General of CPWD C S Prasad said while
talking to reporters on the occasion of the foundation day of
the organisation.

Asked whether any action would be taken against erring
personnel involved in the Commonwealth Games projects Prasad,
however, said, "There are some complaints against individuals
and inquiry is going on. Action will be taken if found guilty
after the inquiry."

The Shunglu committee in its report has found
irregularities in the execution of many projects including
Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Dr Karni Singh Stadium and
Dhyanchand Stadium which were executed by the Central
Public Works Department.

The committee has one-sided approach in respect of
CPWD...the report is one-sided, Prasad reiterated.

Defending the execution of the works, he claimed, "We
were given targets and the projects were commissioned in time.
Every procedure was followed."

He said there has been public opinion about the quality
problems or problems regarding irregularities. "So the
high level comittee studied the entire works and volume of
documents and they have come out with the report.

"We have given the answer (to these findings) pargraph
wise with supporting documents explaining the CPWD position."
Shunglu Committee was constituted by the government to
probe alleged large-scale irregularities in the preparations
for the mega sporting event held in October 2010.
