Unfazed by eight hours plus of questioning in connection with allegations of financial irregularities ahead of the Commonwealth Games, Organising Committee chairman, Suresh Kalmadi walked out smiling from the CBI headquarters on Wednesday evening. Kalmadi walked into the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) headquarters on Wednesday morning and came out only around 6.50 p.m. A smiling Kalmadi walked out and stepped into his car without making any comments or answering any questions from the waiting media persons.

The CBI is probing irregularities in the award of contracts during the Queen’s Baton Relay ceremony in London in October 2009 as also wrongdoing in awarding a contract of Rs.107 crore for procuring timing equipment for the athletics event of the Games.

I guess I’ll sit up and take notice only when the INR 1000 crores or so are recovered. Everything else is a show put on by a government which is unconcerned by large scale corruption. How deep does the rot go? I guess we will never really find out. We can only suspect the worst.
