Sunil Dutt’s letter nails PMO’s lie on Kalmadi appointment

first_imgFormer CWG OC Suresh KalmadiThe government is blaming the previous NDA government for appointment of Suresh Kalmadi as the CWG Organising Committee (OC) chairman, but a letter by a former UPA minister shows the government is clearly in denial.Headlines Today has got proof that a Group of Ministers (GoM) decided to appoint then Union Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs Sunil Dutt as the head of the OC on October 25, 2004.Prime Minister Manmohan Singh too was part of the GoM. The decision was later altered to make Suresh Kalmadi as the chief of the Organising Committee.Headlines Today is in possession of the letter, dated November 14, 2004, which was shot off by the late Sunil Dutt to the prime minister.In the letter, Sunil Dutt clearly states that after the decision to amend the GoM’s decision and make Kalmadi the OC chief, the minutes of the meeting needed to be amended.The decision to make Kalmadi and not the sports minister chief of the CWG working committee proved to be disastrous. Kalmadi and his close associates had a free run, allegedly looting the state’s exchequer.last_img read more
