Slamming the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for demanding her resignation over the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report on the Commonwealth Games irregularities, Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday said she was not answerable to the party.

"What the BJP says is something that I don't have to answer. They can go on saying something or the other but the facts are contrary to what they are saying," Dikshit told reporters in New Delhi.

"If the PAC (Public Accounts Commission) calls us for any clarifications, we are ready," she added.

The 743-page CAG report that was tabled in parliament Friday, indicted the Delhi government, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) and former Commonwealth Games Organising Committee (OC) chief Suresh Kalmadi for irregularities in the preparations for the Games.
