'CAG has unveiled real face of Delhi govt'

Reacting to the Comptroller and Auditor General’s (CAG) report on Commonwealth Games expenditure audit, Leader of the Opposition in Delhi Assembly, Prof V K Malhotra on Saturday said the criminal negligence committed by the government during the CWG has been confirmed once again.

“The Shunglu Committee, appointed by the Prime Minister and the CAG Report, had severely indicted the Delhi government and the Chief Minister over the corruption issues.  However, the Chief Minister of Delhi had then stated that the state government’s version was not heard. Now the CAG had categorically turned down the clarifications given by the Delhi Government and put it in the dock,” said Prof Malhotra. 

The CAG has pointed out the manipulations in the tender documents and deliberate delay in the projects to give undue benefit to the contractors, among others.

Malhotra said the recent report from the CAG has completely unveiled the real face of the state government. Though these charges will be looked into by the Public Accounts Committee, Lok Sabha and Legislative Assembly, the entire scam should be investigated by CBI and the Lokayukta of Delhi should take cognisance of the CAG’s charges and file an FIR.
