New Delhi: Union Home Minister P
Chidambaram Saturday said his ministry was ready to give inputs
to the appropriate authorities looking into allegations of
corruption relating to the Commonwealth Games.

"If we are asked about what went wrong (in the Games)
by the appropriate inquiring authorities, certainly Delhi
Police and the MHA will provide inputs," he told reporters
here.

He was replying to a question on whether the Home
Ministry will provide any inputs on issues relating to
problems in ticketing and accreditation for the Games.

Asked what would be scope of the probe, he said, "I
don`t know. I have nothing to do with it."

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had yesterday appointed
a high-level committee headed by a former CAG to go into
allegations of corruption relating to the sporting
extravaganza.

The committee, headed by former Comptroller and
Auditor General (CAG) VK Shunglu, will submit its report to
the Prime Minister within three months.
