HC seeks Kalmadi attendance record in Parliament
New Delhi: CWG case accused Suresh Kalmadi, who has sought permission to attend the Monsoon session of Parliament, was today asked by the Delhi High Court to produce his attendance record in Lok Sabha for the last five years.
Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw sought Kalmadi`s attendance record in Parliament for last five years while issuing notice to the CBI and asking it to file its reply on his plea. The court said in case Kalmadi fails to obtain records of past five years, he can file his attendance record in previous sessions of the present Lok Sabha.
"Show me the past attendance record in Parliament sessions. What contribution he had during the sessions? What are the queries he had asked and what participation he wants now for which he has approached this court," Justice Endlaw said, while asking Kalmadi to file a detailed affidavit on it on Monday.
The court posed a series of questions to senior counsel Ashok Desai, who appeared for Kalmadi, as to why should his plea to attend the coming session of the Parliament be allowed.
