CAG slams Dikshit, Kalmadi for 'enormous bungling'

New Delhi: The Congress Saturday came out in defence of Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, whose government has been indicted by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) for irregularities in the Commonwealth Games.

The decision came after a meeting here of the Congress core group, attended by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other top leaders.

Janardan Dwivedi, a member of the four-member high-level team which is to oversee party affairs during the absence of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, said the case of Dikshit and former Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa, who resigned recently following his indictment in a mining scam by the Lokayukta, cannot be compared.

"The report (CAG) says that in some heads money was overspent and it could have been saved. It is not as big that it can be compared to Yeddyurappa or someone else," Dwivedi said after the core group meeting.

The party will not readily succumb to the demand of the BJP, a party leader who did not wish to be identified, told IANS.

The party will put its weight behind the chief minister inside and outside the parliament, "at least at the initial stage", he added.

The party is also awaiting the return of Rahul Gandhi, general secretary, who is abroad attending to party chief Sonia Gandhi who is recuperating after a surgery.

Besides Manmohan Singh, the meeting was attended by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, Defence Minister A.K. Antony, Gandhi's political secretary Ahmed Patel, party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi and other leaders.
