New Delhi: Retaliating on VK Shunglu Committee report, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said that there was no negligence and corruption in the development projects carried out, in and around the city, related to the Commonwealth Games-2010.

She maintained that all the projects were carried out according to rules and regulations.

When asked about her approval for the budget without getting a nod from the Lt Governor, Dikshit said it came under the jurisdiction of the government.

All decisions were taken during the Cabinet meetings and it is wrong to say that approval was not taken from the Lt Governor’s office.

Dikshit explained that the Cabinet brought the Expenditure Finance Committee under the leadership of the CM in order to give thrust to the CWG projects and to ensure their timely completion.

However, the CM did not outrightly reject the committee’s report, but also cleared that no particular department or official was blamed directly in the report.

She also claimed that no corruption case was pointed out in the report. “It states that if works were carried out in time, the expenditure incurred would have been less,” said Dikshit.

Meanwhile, the details are under review and concerned departments are preparing answers to questions posed by the high level committee’s report.

However, the CM is yet to receive the report officially. "Though we haven't received the report officially, it has been accessed from the internet," she added

The CM also admitted that she was under pressure after the committee tabled the 235-page report.

She said that in spite of doing positive developments in the national capital, the government is standing in the dock.

After Asiad Games in 1982, Delhi got recognition during the sporting extravaganza, which was held in October last year. She said government will take action if corruption cases are surfaced. "Anybody found guilty of wrongdoings will not be spared," she added.
