Kalmadi seeks court`s permission to attend Parl

New Delhi: Congress MP and sacked chief
of CWG Organising Committee Suresh Kalmadi on Saturday requested a
Delhi court to grant him custody parole to attend the Monsoon session of Parliament beginning August 1.

"Accused Suresh Kalmadi has moved an application
seeking permission from the court to attend the Parliament
session. A notice be issued to the CBI for Monday," Special
CBI Judge Talwant Singh said.
66-year-old Kalmadi, who is a Lok Sabha member from
Pune, sought the court`s permission to attend the 8th session
of the 15th Lok Sabha commencing from August 1.

Earlier this month, Kalmadi had written to Lok Sabha
Speaker Meira Kumar seeking her permission to attend the
monsoon session of Parliament. The Speaker, however, had said
that he would be able to attend Parliament only if a competent
court allowed him to do so.
In his application, moved through his counsel, he
told the court that he has been served with summons from Lok
Sabha Secretary General T K Vishwanathan to attend the session
beginning August 1.

While seeking court`s permission to attend the
Parliament session, which is slated to last till September 8,
and "other incidental and necessary meetings" of it, Kalmadi
said being a peoples` representative "he has a larger role to
play in the polity of the nation as an MP."
