Manmohan Singh New Delhi, Mar. 27 (ANI): The V K Shunglu Committee, appointed by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh to probe into charges of corruption in various projects related to the 2010 Commonwealth Games (CWG), will submit three more reports by March 29.

“We will submit three more reports by 29th March. They will be on Commonwealth Games Organising Committee and Games venues-related matters,” said Shunglu.

The reports to be submitted by the Committee by Tuesday will highlight several inadequacies on part of government officials and contractors in executing works for the 2010 sporting extravaganza.

The Shunglu Committee had on January 31 submitted its first report on alleged irregularities in awarding broadcasting rights during the sporting extravaganza and recommended strict action against suspended Chief Executive Officer of Prasar Bharti B S Lalli and former Director General (Doordarshan) Aruna Sharma under relevant Sections of IPC and Prevention of Corruption Act for their alleged act of omission and commission.

Both Lalli, a 1971-batch IAS officer, and Sharma (1982 batch IAS officer of MP cadre) are facing allegations of irregularities in the Rs.246 crore deal struck by public broadcasting body which included the controversial decision to give the contract for broadcast of the Games to a UK-based firm SIS Live.

The second and third report submitted by the Committee on the Games Village and the city’s infrastructure has indicted Delhi Lieutenant-Governor Tejinder Khanna and Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, among several others, for delays and losses in projects related to the 2010 Games.

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, however, on Friday had said that her government was studying the report of the Shunglu Committee that probed alleged irregularities in the conduct of the 2010 Games. (ANI)
