New Delhi: Apparently uneasy about sharing a
platform with sacked Commonwealth Games Organising Committee
Chairman Suresh Kalmadi, Sports Minister Ajay Maken today said
he is yet to decide on whether to attend the closing ceremony
of the National Games in Ranchi on Saturday.

Asked if he is attending the ceremony of the National
Games, Maken said, "There are more than 24 hours for the
closing ceremony."

On being persistently asked by reporters outside the
Parliament if he does not want to share a platform with
Kalmadi, Maken said, "There are 24 hours for me to decide on
it."

Kalmadi has not just been sacked as the OC chief, he is
also facing allegations of massive corruption and is being
investigated by the CBI.
