Dikshit promises full cooperation to MHA Shunglu probe

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Thursday promised to extend "full cooperation" to the Home Ministry if it seeks any reply from her government on the findings of the CWG probe panel. "We have not received any communication from the Home Ministry so far. We will extend our full cooperation if they seek our response (on the Shunglu committee report)," Dikshit said when asked whether government has received any communication from Home Ministry. Sources said all the city government officials whose names figure in the Shunglu Committee report have been told to submit their response in writing to the government. Prime Minister's Office earlier this month had referred the Shunglu Committee findings on alleged irregularities by certain Delhi government departments to the Home Ministry for further action.

Home Ministry is likely to seek reply from Khanna and Dikshit and other agencies concerned,held responsible by the panel for lack of oversight and decisions that led to cost escalation.Rejecting the Shunglu committee report, Delhi government had termed the findings as a "product of paranoia" which is "full of contradictions" and "anomalies".

In its brief report to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in response to the findings of the Shunglu Committee, the city government last month had rejected almost all the findings of the panel and instead accused it of deliberately choosing to adopt a logic of "convenience" in finding corruption in every policy and every tender of the government.The BJP has been demanding resignation of Dikshit in the wake of the report by the high powered committee.The administration of Delhi, being a Union Territory, comes under the control of Home Ministry.Media agencies
