New Delhi: BJP on Wednesday accused certain
officials in the Prime minister`s Office of pushing
Commonwealth Games budget despite warnings from former Sports
"The role of certain officials in the PMO should also be
probed, as they helped increasing the Commonwealth budget
despite warnings by former Sports ministers. The BJP wants a
probe into the matter," BJP spokesman Shahnawaz Hussain said.
Hussain also disagreed with the Prime minister`s
observation made today that his "ministers had ideological
differences with each other over the Commonwealth Games".
The BJP leader said "there was no ideological difference
among the ministers. They were warning the PM on the loot in
the name of Commonwealth Games."
"The former sports ministers had differences over the
holding of Commonwealth Games and were warning him about the
big loot in the name of Commonwealth Games. Despite such
warnings and after ignoring them, the budget for Commonwealth
Games was increased instead".
