After the recent arrest of his aides following investigations into corruption in the Delhi Commonwealth Games, Suresh Kalmadi wants the scope of the probe to be expanded to include various ministers. Here is a report from IE:

Former Commonwealth Games Organising Committee (OC) chief Suresh Kalmadi on Thursday said that the CBI, which is probing the CWG scam, had “singled out” only OC officials while no government official was questioned.

Hours later, talking to CNN-IBN channel, he said Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, along with two Union Ministers, should also be summoned by the investigating agency.

Kalmadi, who was in Ranchi in connection with the National Games, said all decisions pertaining to the purchase of the CWG equipment were taken unanimously by the executive board of the the OC. “This Committee comprised officials of the Union Sports Ministry, Delhi Government, Commonwealth Federations and IOA. Why were some OC officials singled out and not even one government official quizzed,” he said.

When asked if he wanted the Delhi CM as well as former Sports Minister M S Gill and Urban Development Minister S Jaipal Reddy to be summoned by the investigating agency, he told CNN-IBN: “All those who were involved in organising the Games must be summoned. Why just go after the OC?”
