BJP to submit white paper on CWG preparations to LG on Aug 3
New Delhi, Jul 14 (UNI) Calling it a ''game of corruption'' between the Delhi Government and corporates involved in preparation for Commonwealth Games' venues, BJP today said it will submit a white paper to the Delhi Lieutenant Governor exposing how the people in the city have been cheated by the government.
A delegation of the Delhi Pradesh BJP, headed by its president Vijender Gupta, initiated a tour to all the Games' venues to ''bring into light their real condition in front of the citizens and pressurise the government to speed up their tasks at least now.''
''We will visit all the venues one by one on day-to-day basis in next 15 days and exactly two months before the Games, that is on August 3, we will submit a white
paper to Delhi Lieutenant Governor Tejender Khanna in this regard,'' Mr Gupta told UNI here.
On the first day of the tour, Mr Gupta along with other senior party leaders, including former Delhi Chief Minister Madanlal Khurana and former party legislator Vijay Jolly, visited two places in Central Delhi -- Shivaji Stadium and subway in front of Super Bazar in Connaught Place.
Mr Gupta added that the BJP is ready to provide every kind of support to the government in the run up to the Games. ''They never asked us for any help. They should let us know if they have anything less, be it volunteers. But they should not put the nation's pride on stake,'' he said.
Accusing the government of mismanagement, Mr Khurana asked, ''what was the need of destroying the whole Shivaji Stadium,? Whatever they are, building was already there. They just had to renovate it a little.''
Mr Jolly blamed the government of losing a golden opportunity to build the infrastructure in the city. ''They are just destroying and remaking all the existing stadiums present in the capital. They have not build even one on their own,'' he said.
