PMO shielding guilty in CWG scam: BJP
The BJP accused the PMO of trying to cover-up the guilty in the Commonwealth Games anomalies by dilly-dallying action against those named guilty by the Shunglu panel and demanded that the report be handed over to the CBI.
New Delhi: The BJP on Wednesday accused the PMO of
trying to cover-up and shield the guilty in the Commonwealth
Games anomalies by dilly-dallying action against those named
guilty by the Shunglu panel and demanded that the report be
handed over to the CBI.
"The BJP disapproves of the dilly-dallying by the Prime
Minister`s Office regarding action on the six reports
submitted by the V K Shunglu Committee on the corruption and
irregularities in the organisation of CWG 2010," party
spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told reporters here.
The Shunglu Committee has reportedly indicted Delhi Chief
Minister Sheila Dikshit and former CWG Organising Committee
head Suresh Kalmadi for the irregularities.
"It was promised that all the reports of this high-level
committee will be sent to the CBI for further investigation
and action. The government put forward this argument as a
defence for not having a JPC on the issue," Javadekar said.
He alleged that the government was not taking appropriate
action on the issue as some senior Congress leaders have been
named in the report.
"The government seems to be dithering on the delivery of
the promise, as the reports directly held Dikshit, some UPA
ministers and Kalmadi as responsible for the mess and the
loot. This is nothing but yet another cover-up operation of
the worst scam India has ever witnessed," the BJP leader said.
He alleged that the PMO was also trying to cover-up other
scams like 2G spectrum and Adarsh housing.
