New Delhi: BJP Thursday asked CBI, which grilled
Commonwealth Games Organising Committee Chief Suresh Kalmadi
for nine hours, to stop "playing host" to the Congress leader
and said his rightful place was in jail for "indulging in
corruption" in the Games` projects.
"The CBI should stop playing host to Kalmadi... His
rightful place is with Sanjay Mahindroo and T S Darbari
(senior officials of Organising Committee) who are in jail,"
BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.
Kalmadi was questioned by CBI for nearly nine hours
yesterday on the Commonwealth Games anomalies.
"As everybody knows very well, no decision in the
Commonwealth Games preparations was taken without Kalmadi`s
consent," Hussain said.
"His rightful place is in West Delhi in the famous Tihar
jail," he said.
BJP had led the opposition parties in holding a debate
in Parliament on the reported anomalies in Commonwealth Games
preparations ahead of the event and alleged that crores of tax
payers money was being blown up in the projects due to
inflated payments and commissions.
Later, the BJP also demanded a JPC probe into the alleged
scam, along with a similar probe into the 2-G Spectrum
allocation and Adarsh Housing Society scandals.
