The NDA today gave separate privilege notices in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha against Sports Minister Ajay Maken's statement on the Commonwealth Games.

Maken, in a suo motu statement on the CWG, had put the blame on the BJP-led opposition for appointment of Suresh Kalmadi as CWG Organising Committee chief.

The decision to move the notices was taken by NDA leaders at a meeting chaired by senior BJP leader L.K. Advani.

The NDA decided in case their notice was rejected, they would not allow the two Houses to function. The NDA is seeking a debate on the matter, after suspension of question hour.

While Yashwant Sinha would move the privilege notice in the Lok Sabha, S S Ahluwalia would move the notice in the Rajya Sabha.

With CAG report stating that Kalmadi was appointed CWG Organising Committee chief based on a PMO recommendation, Maken had said on Friday that he was elected to the post by the IOA as per the Host City Contract approved by the NDA regime and 'there was no scope for any change'.

Maken had also rejected a suggestion that the decision to appoint Kalmadi as OC chairman facilitated the conversion of the originally envisaged government-run OC into a body outside government control.
