Commonwealth Games Organising Committee (OC) chairman Suresh Kalmadi on Thursday reiterated that he is ready to face any inquiry including a judicial probe in the alleged financial irregularities in the preparation of the ensuing October 3-14 Delhi mega-event.

"I am ready to face any inquiry including a judicial probe," Kalmadi told reporters in Pune on Thursday, while denying any wrong doing on his part as OC Chairman.

Kalmadi said the OC was concerned only with the allocation of Rs 1600 crore towards cost of the Games and not with the funds of Rs 40,000 provided for the infrastructure.

"Kalmadi has no powers and all decisions are taken unanimously," he said.

He said although he was monitoring, "infrastructure is not my business and I have not given any tender".

The CVC report comments pertained to construction part of the Games and the OC, he said.

A 15-member committee including recent addition of an Under Secretary, Finance, was involved in the decision making process for the conduct of the Games, he added.
