The CAG report on the Commonwealth Games mess led to a slugfest in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday with the Opposition alleging involvement of the PMO, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and the Congress casting doubts on the role and authority of the government auditor.

Who appointed Kalmadi?

A special discussion on the issue saw CPI (M) leader Basudeb Acharia also pinpointing the blame on the PMO and Ms. Dikshit, maintaining that they cannot go scot free.

Disputing the government’s claim that the appointment of Mr. Kalmadi as Chairman of the CWG Organising Committee was made during the NDA rule, Mr. Acharia wondered whether there was no way out for the UPA government to change the decision.

“If there was no way out except to make Kalmadi the Chairman of the Organising Committee (OC), then how come the Prime Minister also opined that Kalmadi be made the Chairman of the OC,” he posed.

Mr. Acharia questioned whether the appointment of Mr. Kalmadi was binding on the government.

Why is CAG looking into policy decisions?

The occasion was utilised by Manish Tewari (Congress) who opened the debate on behalf of the Congress to target the CAG questioning its right to go into the policy decisions of the government, including key appointments.

Why was the PM silent?

01) Mr. Yashwant Sinha in Lok Sabha and Mr. Arun Jaitley in Rajya Sabha have demolished the hitherto weak and specious defence of UPA Government absolving itself of any wrong-doing in CWG Scam called the National Loot of Thousands of Crores of tax payers money!

02) But, Dr. Manmohan Singh has become too thick-skinned that he no more is sensitive to the allegations of corruption!!

03)  He also wouldn't make Delhi Chief Minister, Sheila Dikshit who has been repeatedly indicted by Shunglu Committee and CAG, lest his own complicity in the largescale corruption in the name of conducting Common Wealth Games would be exposed!!!
