Panji: BJP vice president Venkaiah Naidu on Monday accused Congress of making the sacked chairman of the Organising Committee (OC) Suresh Kalmadi a scapegoat in the Commonwealth Games scam.

Addressing a rally in Mapusa town marking wrapping up of the fortnight-long 'Jana Sampark Abhiyaan' of his party, Naidu said, "Why Delhi Chief Minister (Sheila Dikshit) was not arrested in connection with the financial irregularities in the Commonwealth Games?".

The campaign launched on January 15 by senior leader Arun Jaitley toured 39 constituencies and reached 2 lakh people.

Keeping heat on Congress, Naidu, without taking names said, "why was union sports minister not arrested? Why was union urban development not arrested for their role into the scam?".

The senior leader also targetted Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for "remaining silent" on corruption.

Appealing the people to vote for BJP in March 3 Assembly polls, Naidu said his party could only provide transparent governance.
