New Delhi:  The report of the government's auditor - the Comptroller and Auditor General - has been tabled in Parliament. Among those it faults for mismanagement are Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and the Lieutenant Governor Tejinder Khanna. These are the highlights of the 800-page report:

·    There are 33 audited entities; 33 chapters, 743 pages  

·    The unique challenge of monitoring activities of multiple agencies should have been met by entrusting stewardship to single point of accountability and authority which would also specify quality standards

·    This stewardship should have been fully under government control. This was not followed

·    May 2003 envisaged Organising Committee (OC) as government-owned registered society, with chairman of OC as a government appointee and President of Indian Olympic Association as Vice-Chairman. But it was set up in 2005 as non-government registered society with Indian Olympic Association President Suresh Kalmadi as Chair. This change was orchestrated through an updated bid in December 2003 which had no legal sanctity or relevance. It indicated changed structure which surfaced only in 2004

·    Despite objections from then Sports Minister Sunil Dutt, Mr Kalmadi was named Chairman based on recommendations of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) in December 2004

          ·         A multiplicity of coordination committees were created, disbanded and reconstituted, leading to    complete diffusion of accountability
