Government ready for CBI probe into graft charges related to CWG

Publicado  Friday, August 6, 2010

NEW DELHI: Government on Friday said it was willing to ask the CBI to look into charges of irregularities by state agencies involved in Commonwealth Games projects and accused the opposition of projecting incorrect figures on the expenditure incurred for the mega event.



 

"Rs 11,500 crore is the actual expenditure...The figures of Rs 50,000 crore and Rs one lakh crore are totally incorrect," Union Minister for Urban Development S Jaipal Reddy told reporters outside Parliament.

On allegations of corruption in the projects related to the Games, Reddy said, "Government agencies may have committed some irregularities. Each of the allegations will be looked into. We can even ask the CBI to look into them.”

The issue of alleged large-scale corruption in CWG projects today rocked Lok Sabha with the entire opposition attacking the government, accusing it of allowing "loot" of public money. The Left demanded a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to probe the charges.

Reddy, who heads the Group of Ministers on the Games, was not allowed to respond to the charges by the opposition, which wanted the reply only after a full-fledged debate.

Reddy said that he was not concerned with the Games directly as the Sports Ministry was looking into it. "However, I wanted to respond to it as the Chairman of the Group of Ministers. I have been an MLA or an MP for 42 years. Never before has a minister not been allowed to speak when he wanted to," the Minister said.

Reddy said the CWG Organising Committee, which has been facing allegations of corruption, should not be confused with government agencies.

"The Organizing Committee is a totally independent organisation like the BCCI...If there have been problems and allegations about the Organising Committee, the government can initiate enquiry. All investigating agencies - CVC, CAG, Enforcement Directorate, FEMA will act," he said.

Asked about the delay in completion of the projects related to the Games, the minister said, "I would not completely deny it.”

Reddy blamed shortage of labour in Delhi as one of the reasons for the delay. He said the success of MGNREGA -- Centre's flagship employment guarantee programme -- was a reason why few workers were available for the projects as they now had work in their villages.

On the opposition questioning the holding of Games in Delhi, the Union Minister said that the decision was taken by the then Atal Bihari Vajpayee government in 2003.

"When the UPA came to power, it was out moral and political responsibility to discharge our duty," he said.
