BJP walkout in LS over Shunglu report on CWG irregularities

New Delhi, March 25, 2011

Opposition BJP today demanded immediate tabling of the report of Shunglu Committee that probed alleged irregularities in the conduct of Commonwealth Games and walked out from the Lok Sabha protesting the government's response.

Raising the matter as soon as the House met for the day, senior BJP leader L.K. Advani said there have been media reports that the Shunglu Committee had submitted its report to the government.

The government should table the report in Parliament today itself and if possible, have a discussion on it, he said.

Mr. Advani said at the beginning of the session three issues related to corruption were raised - 2G spectrum allocation, conduct of Commonwealth Games and the Adarsh Housing scam.

Since the talk of corruption began with the conduct of Commonwealth Games, the Shunglu Committee report should be tabled in Parliament without delay, he said.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal said the Shunglu Committee was set up by the government through an Executive Order and its report was yet to be looked into by the government.

"I will convey to the government through the minister concerned and convey the feelings of the House. If any action has to be taken in the matter it would be taken," Mr. Bansal said.

Leader of the Opposition Sushma Swaraj expressed dissatisfaction with Mr. Bansal's response saying it was the government's stock reply to the opposition on every matter.

Action, if required, will be taken is the government's reply to every demand of the Opposition, she said before leading the BJP walkout.
