Sonia under BJP fire over CWG

first_imgIt’s not just the PMO, but Congress president Sonia Gandhi who is now being dragged into the CWG mess. It’s Suresh Kalmadi’s claim that Sonia endorsed the decision to appoint him as the CWG Organising Committee’s chairman that is being used by the BJP to target the UPA government. In the Rajya Sabha, BJP leader Arun Jaitley said on Tuesday that Kalmadi, in a letter to the principal secretary to the PM in 2007, had complained that the Sports Ministry was interfering in his jurisdiction.  Kalmadi went on to say that he was appointed the chairman after a series of meetings with Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the Group of Ministers.  Jaitley’s statement led to disruptions in the Rajya Sabha with BJP members raising slogans against Sonia and blaming her for appointing Kalmadi.last_img
