New Delhi:  Sheila Dikshit has been blamed for costing the government Rs. 31 crore in losses by deciding to use imported equipment for street lighting in Delhi during the Commonwealth Games. 

The government's auditor finds  that after the Chief Minister's sanction, lights were bought at a price that ranged from Rs. 25,000 to 32,000 each - "far higher than the fair price computed."

The Games were held in Delhi in September 2010. 

The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG)  also cites the example of a company  named Space Age, which imported low-cost bulbs from Saudi Arabia.  Space Age allegedly paid  Rs. 5,000 per light but charged the government Rs. 25,000 per light - earning a super profit of more than Rs. 2.5 crores.
