The Bharatiya Janata Party has called for initiating proceedings against Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dixit in connection with the multi-crore Commonwealth Games scam.

It said that the arrest of Congress MP and CWG Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi has come “too late” and “is too little” to serve any purpose.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh constituted the V.K. Shunglu Committee, but it failed to initiate proceedings against top politicians and bureaucrats connected with the case, BJP national spokesperson Syed Shahnawaz Hussain said here on Monday.

The committee report named Ms. Dixit and other Ministers and authorities for infrastructural delays that took place before the run-up to the Games.

As regards to the 2G spectrum allocation, Mr. Hussain questioned the “game of political expediency” being practised by the Congress by charge sheeting the former Telecom Minister, A. Raja, twice, once before and once after the Tamil Nadu elections.

“The politics of the country has been irrevocably damaged as a result of the Congress' corrupt practices. They attempted to disrupt the first Joint Parliamentary Committee meeting on the 2G spectrum scam by demanding that our senior leaders like Jaswant Singh and Yashwant Sinha be kept out of it,” Mr. Hussain said.
