New Delhi: Congress leader PL Punia on Monday demanded Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s resignation for alleged irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) during his tenure as chairman.

A fair probe is possible only when Arun Jaitley resigns from his post and if he does not resign, he must be sacked by the prime minister.

Modi government should not delay in ordering the probe as it has promised zero tolerance towards corruption,” he added.

He also demanded that a court-monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe the alleged irregularities in DDCA.

He said BJP member Kirti Azad had said in the house that the CBI had sent a notice to the DDCA in October 2015 and had called for SIT probe.

Home Minister and Parliamentary Affairs Minister were in the house when Azad made his remarks but they did not refute. This means that they agree with Azad. How can such a person continue as finance minister.

He said Jaitley had filed a defamation case against AAP leaders, but not against his own party MP.

Punia also said Azad asked 52 questions on DDCA irregularities during his press conference on Sunday, but Jaitley had not answered any of these questions. (IANS)(Picture Courtesy:zeenews.india.com)

DDCA scam: Sanghi says there was pressure on him to name a certain VIP

New Delhi: Chetan Sanghi, who headed a three-member team to probe alleged financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association, has said there was pressure on him to name a certain VIP in the report prepared in a mere three days.

Sanghi, one of the most senior bureaucrats in the Delhi government, said he had to walk a “very tight rope” to not name anyone as it was not the formal mandate of the committee.

Sanghi said this in a letter to the union home ministry, requesting a post in the central government since he was “distraught” over the developments following submission of his report — two FIRs against him for alleged wrongdoing.

In the letter to Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi, Sanghi said that on November 12, 2015, he was asked by the Aam Aadmi Party government to head the three-member committee to inquire into the alleged DDCA irregularities and submit the report in three days.

“There was a lot of pressure from various stakeholders since the subject was very controversial,” Sanghi wrote.

“There was a considerable emphasis on naming who were at fault and in particular a certain VIP. But since the formal mandate was not to do so, a very tight rope was taken. The short time-frame of three days also didn’t particularly help matters,” he added.

Sanghi said that after the report’s submission, two first information report were filed against him by the Anti-Corruption Branch for alleged wrongdoing during his tenure as CMD of Delhi Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation between 2010 and 2012.

The senior officer said he was distraught over the developments, asking the ministry to assign him a posting on central deputation.

The Delhi government has set up a Commission of Inquiry headed by former solicitor general Gopal Subramaniam to probe alleged corruption in the DDCA — headed by Arun Jaitley, presently the union finance minister, for 13 years until 2013. (IANS)(Photo: The Hindu)
