Prime Minister blamed for Kalmadi

leave a comment »

ET reports:

The Comptroller and Auditor General, whose report on the 2G spectrum allocation exposed the scam, has held the Prime Minister’s Office responsible for making Suresh Kalmadi the Commonwealth Organising Committee Chairman, according to an English news channel.

“The decision of the PMO to appoint Suresh Kalmadi Chairman of the Organising Committee facilitated the conversion of the originally-envisaged government-owned OC into a body effectively outside the government control,” the channel quoted CAG as saying in a report to be presented to Parliament soon.

Then Sports Minister Sunil Dutt had opposed the move to make Kalmadi Chairman of the Organising Committee in 2004. Kalmadi was appointed OC chief as he was head of the Indian Olympic Association. Overruling Dutt’s objections, the PMO cited the 1982 Asian Games precedence.
