NEW DELHI - Union Sports Minister M.S. Gill said on Monday all irregularities in the recently concluded Commonwealth Games will be examined and the guilty will not be spared.
Gill made a suo motu and assured that the Government will carefully take on board the recommendations of the Shunglu Committee, the former Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) and the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) before agreeing to host similar international sporting events.
Gill informed the members of the committee have already started auditing all Games related projects and the expenditure of the Organising Committee (OC).
He said there are plans to complete this exercise within three months and present a draft report by the first week of January.
The Sports Minister also said the other agencies such as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax Authorities are investigating alleged irregularities.
The statement was laid on the table of both the houses by opposition over its demand for Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into all corruption cases including the CWG. (ANI)
