The Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday demanded a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the Commonwealth Games scam.
Equating the Games to a "big fat Indian wedding without the groom", the BJP's Kirti Azad said it should not be called the Commonwealth Games but the "Corrupt Games".
"The stadia are incomplete. Where would the marriage be held?," he asked, while participating in a discussion in the Lok Sabha on the delay in the preparations for the October 3-14 mega event.
He alleged that there was lack of co-ordination among the ministries and government agencies in creating the infrastructure for the games.
"It is a very sorry state of affairs. Nobody has taken responsibility. The work is in shambles. Incomplete stadia stare us in the face," Azad said.
Alleging a scam of thousands of crores of rupees in developing the infrastructure for the Games, he said a JPC probe should be held to unearth the truth.
