Remove Sheila, Gill & Kalmadi before CWG: BJP
New Delhi, Aug 3 (UNI) The BJP today demanded removal of Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Union Minister MS Gill and Commonwealth Games Organising Committee Chief Suresh Kalmadi from their posts and formation of a new team for proper conduction
of the Games.
''The Chief Minister, Sports Minister and CWG Organising Committee's Chairman should be removed for their total failure in preparing for the Games,'' Delhi BJP Chief Vijender Gupta said at a press conference here.
After the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) report had exposed the high-level corruption in the run up to the Games, the government should take affective and concrete step to address the complaints, he said.
''Even after the CVC assessment report, the Prime Minister has said everything related to the Games is going well. This shows how casual they are towards 'national pride','' Mr Gupta said.
To a query that at a time when only 60 days are left for the mega sporting event the BJP's demand of the removal of the three would cause further delay, he told UNI, ''They are corrupt officials. If the genuine ones will come, the work will surely be done in a better way.''
The BJP today issued a 'white paper' on the corruption and delay of projects in the Games.
