Sacked CWG Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi today said Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, along with two other Union Ministers, should be summoned by CBI which is probing the allegations of corruption relating to the mega event.
"All those who were involved in organising the Games must be summoned. Why just go after the Organising Committee"? he told CNN-IBN when asked if he wanted the Delhi CM as well as former Sports Minister M S Gill and Urban Development Minister S Jaipal Reddy to be summoned by the investigating agencies.
Attacking the Delhi CM for her statements against the Organising Committee, Kalmadi said "she said that even before the investigations started that all scams are in OC. Does that mean she predetermined all this?"
The former OC chief said Dikshit must "see her departments and her budget. Let her talk of what happened in her departments and don't blame us. She targeted the OC and I objected. They should look at their own house. Let her talk after the probe and not presuppose."
Asked if he was scared of being arrested as some reports have suggested, he said "I have not done anything wrong. Why should I be worried? I am not scared at all."
On M S Gill, Kalmadi said "I don't know what happens to people when they occupy the Sports Minister's chair. I felt hurt when I wasn't invited for any of the felicitations for the athletes, post-Games."
To a question who all he thought were responsible for the mess surrounding the CWG, he said "all government officers who were associated with the organizing of the Games must be questioned."
