Uproar over Shunglu report on CWG scam

The opposition parties also demanded actions against Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor Tejendra Khanna who was also reportedly indicted by the panel.

Senior BJP leader L K Advani raised the issue in the Lok Sabha and  said that if the panel, which was constituted by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, had submitted its report as media reports suggested, then it should be tabled in the House at the earliest for discussion.

He said that three issues related to corruption were raised in the Lok Sabha at the beginning of the Budget Session –  2G spectrum scam involving the Ministry of Communication, CWG scam and the Adarsh Housing Society scam in Mumbai. “Since the latest round of discourse on corruption started with the conduct of the Commonwealth Games, the panel report should immediately be tabled in Parliament,” said Advani.

Senior BJP MP Venkaiah Naidu raised the issue in the Rajya Sabha. He demanded that Dixit should step down and actions should be taken against the Lieutenant Governor and officials of the Delhi Development Authority.

MPs from Biju Janata Dal and Janata Dal (United) also supported him. Later, BJP-led opposition members shouted slogans and created ruckus in the House. As they were about to troop into the well of the House, Deputy Chairman K Rahman Khan adjourned the House for 15 minutes.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Bansal told both Houses that the government would not be found wanting and all required actions would be taken. He said that the government needs time to study the report while promising to convey the feelings of the House to the Government.

However, not satisfied with Bansal’s statement, the opposition led by Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj, staged a walk-out from the Lok Sabha.
