Kalmadi's arrest "belated": BJP Lucknow,(PTI) The BJP today described as "belated" the arrest of sacked CWG Organising Committee Chairman Suresh Kalmadi and demanded action against other culprits as well.
"Kalmadi's arrest is a right step taken belatedly," BJP national general secretary Ravi Shanker Prasad told reporters here.
"But why only Kalmadi? All those responsible and involved in the Rs 70,000 crore scam should be brought to book and punished," he said.
Prasad said while the Organising Committee was responsible for the games, there were irregularities in construction of roads, flyovers and other works as well.
"Who did all these irregularities and why an inquiry is not being conducted against them," he asked.
The BJP leader alleged that maximum funds were released by the officials in the Prime Minister's office.
"Besides, action against those responsible, we demand a charge sheet with concrete evidences be filed in the case," he said.
