first_imgThe former Games OC chairman pins the blame on the authorities in the CWG scam case and demands the questioning of Sheila Dikshit and M.S. Gill.Sacked Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi is likely to be arrested soon in the CWG scam case, sources said. This comes close on the heels of the arrest of his closest aides, former OC secretary-general Lalit Bhanot and director-general V.K. Verma. CBI on Wednesday arrested the two key aides of Kalmadi for allegedly tweaking technical qualifications to favour a Swiss time-keeping company.  Kalmadi on Thursday said Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, along with two other Union Ministers, should be summoned by the CBI which is probing the allegations of corruption relating to the mega event. “All those who were involved in organising the Games must be summoned. Why just go after the Organising Committee”? he said when asked if he wanted the Delhi CM as well as former sports minister M.S. Gill and former urban development minister S. Jaipal Reddy to be summoned by the investigating agencies. Attacking the Delhi CM for her statements against the Organising Committee, Kalmadi said, “She said even before the investigations started that all scams are in OC. Does that mean she predetermined all this?”last_img
