Parliament to Witness Stormy Session on CAG Report on Involvement of Delhi Govt in Irregularities in CWG

BeyondHeadlines News Desk

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party-led coalition National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is all set to attack the Delhi Government on the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report on Commonwealth Games (CWG) on Monday.

The report slams the Sheila Dikshit-lead Delhi Government over irregularities and points fingers at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) over the appointment of Suresh Kalmadi to head the games organising committee.

The NDA leaders are meeting today at 10 am to stalk out a strategy to corner the Congress government and demand resignation of Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, indicted in the CAG report on the CWG.

NDA leaders argue that if action can be taken against former telecom minister A Raja on the basis of a CAG report and if BS Yeddyurappa was made to resign as the Karnataka chief minister on the basis of a Lokayukta report, there was no reason why the Delhi chief minister should be spared.

The party has already demanded resignation of Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit following indictment of her government by the CAG over irregularities in the games. It has also targeted the PMO and the then finance minister P Chidambaram over the 2G spectrum issue.

BJP sources said if the government does not agree to its demand for a discussion on corruption-related issues, the party may force an adjournment.
