A Lok Sabha discussion on Sports Minister Ajay Maken's statement regarding Commonwealth Games 2010 was marred by procedural wrangles, uproar and heated exchanges on Tuesday, finally leading to adjournment of the House for the day.

With the Left and the Bharatiya Janata Party taking the United Progressive Alliance government to task and targeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit for the CWG mess, the solitary, spirited defence from the ruling coalition came from Manish Tewari of the Congress.

Though the Comptroller and Auditor-General's report on the CWG provided the staple for the discussion, it veered round to Congress MP Suresh Kalmadi, sacked Chairman of the Organising Committee (OC), now lodged in the Tihar jail, for his alleged involvement in the CWG scam.

Drowned in din

As the House was drowned in din in the evening with BJP members storming the well to protest the police lathi charge in the capital against their youth wing members, Mr. Maken's wait for his turn to reply to the discussion proved futile and the House was adjourned.

Tewari quotes report

Quoting from The Hindu's report “BJP batted for Kalmadi,” Mr. Tewari said Mr. Kalmadi's name was proposed by BJP leader Vijay Kumar Malhotra. He gave a chronology of events, seeking to put the NDA in the dock for giving up arbitration rights to courts of England. He charged the BJP with pursuing a political agenda of trying to force the Delhi Chief Minister's resignation because their party's Chief Minister in Karnataka had to quit.
