Delhi government on Wednesday filed a 400-page report on the indictments made in the Shunglu Panel report.
The voluminous response, which was tabled in the Cabinet on Wednesday will be later sent to the Home Ministry which had asked it to explain its position on the PM-appointed committee's report.
She refused to give any details and said: 'No more information on the report can be divulged. Let the report go to the home ministry. It will be a point-to-point report, which will be submitted.'
According to Delhi government sources, a three-member committee of senior bureaucrats was constituted by Dikshit to look into the details of the report and respond chapter-wise to the allegations made in the Shunglu Committee report.
Shunglu, a former comptroller and auditor general (CAG), was appointed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to head the probe into charges of corruption in the Commonwealth Games held last October.
The committee has submitted two reports, one on the Games Village and the other on the city's infrastructure development for the event. The panel primarily blamed the Delhi chief minister and Lieutenant Governor Tejendra Khanna.
It raised queries on works done by departments controlled by the Delhi government.
The report on city infrastructure was referred to the home ministry by the Prime Minister Office (PMO) for appropriate action.
Soon after the arrest of former CWG Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had demanded Dikshit's arrest citing the Shunglu Committee report.
