Sheila will have to go to jail after CWG: BJP
New Delhi, Jul 31 (UNI) Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit will have to go to jail if charges of corruption and irregularities in the works for the coming Commonwealth Games detected by the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) were proved, BJP said today.
''Following the CVC assessment report, chances are that the Chief Minister will have to go to jail after the Games are over,'' BJP state president Vijender Gupta told reporters here.
Charging Ms Dikshit with ''emotionally blackmailing'' Delhi citizens in the name of upholding national pride in the Games, he came down heavily on her for her comments ''Do you want me to go to jail?'' when she was asked yesterday whether she was ready to take responsibility for adverse assessment made by the CVC.
Condemning Ms Dikshit for her alleged ''irresponsible attitude'', Mr Gupta said she would have to reply all the charges against her and her government made in the CVC report. ''It is a clear case of established crime and corruption in organising the Commonwealth Games.''
Referring to the alleged money laundering by the Games Organising Committee which transferred over Rs 2 crore to a London-based firm A M Films, he said there were
many more such issues which have not been exposed till now.
