New Delhi: BJP on Tuesday demanded early
prosecution of Prasar Bharti officials found guilty by the
Shunglu Committee of allegedly causing a loss of several crore
rupees in awarding Commonwealth Games broadcasting rights.
"Now prosecution should be sanctioned against the
officers whose names have appeared. It has been proved that
loot has taken place in the organising, infrastructure and
telecast dealings," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told
He alleged that it was the "speciality of the UPA
government to sanction higher bills to make money."
Questioning the delay in prosecuting the officials, he
demanded immediate filing of the FIR against the accused.
The Committee had yesterday submitted an interim
report on alleged irregularities in awarding broadcasting
rights during Commonwealth Games to the PMO.
