The CBI has tightened the screws now on Scams of UPA. The reason for this is the acceptance of the report of the Public Account Committee, in which several types of allegations were made on Manmohan Singh. While being the prime minister of India, Suresh Kalmadi was elected president of the committee, organizing these games and questions were raised about corruption during this period. According to an English newspaper, the PAC has dismissed the meeting of the Ministers held under the chairmanship of then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on January 14, 2005 and the statements of the Sports Ministry given in it.
It has been said in the report that when the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had talked about this project, instead of giving it to the other, it had decided to take it forward according to the prescribed schedule. Apart from this, it has been delayed by about two months in making its report. According to the report printed in the newspaper, due to the political pressure, the Cabinet Secretariat failed to fix responsibility in this regard. This was done during UPA 2.
The PAC, led by BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi, studied the report of the CAG presented in this regard, in which the talk of irregularity was discussed in organizing the Commonwealth Games. The PAC also asked the CBI to re-examine it. About 33 cases were registered in this regard, some of which were recorded on Suresh Kalmadi and some of his closest associates.
It is worth mentioning that the Commonwealth Games were held in Delhi from October 3-14, 2010. There were serious allegations of corruption against many prominent Congress leaders regarding irregularities in organizing this event. Suresh Kalmadi, then president of the Commonwealth Games Committee, was also charged with several bogus charges and serious corruption charges as well. Apart from them, the CBI had also set up cases of corruption on nearly ten people.
