A Delhi government inquiry report on the affairs of the capital’s cricket body DDCA does not even mention the name of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who has been under Opposition attack over the alleged irregularities during his tenure as its chief.


However, continuing its attack on Mr Jaitley, the AAP accused him of “running away” from probe and challenged him to face an inquiry by an independent agency into charges of corruption in Delhi’s cricket body, DDCA.



The party also said Jaitley and BJP are “misinterpreting” the findings of the three-member committee, constituted by the Delhi government to look into the charges of corruption in the DDCA, and trying to project that the report gives Mr Jaitley a clean chit.

The 237-page report by a three-member committee headed by Principal Secretary in Vigilance Department Chetan Sanghi has said that considering the “large number of allegations against DDCA”, the cricket body should be immediately suspended by the BCCI.

Without any mention of Jaitley anywhere in the report, the committee made host of observations about alleged irregularities by DDCA which include construction of the corporate boxes without prior approval of the authorities.

The panel slammed BCCI for its “inaction” in the affairs of DDCA and had recommended that Delhi should approach the SC with a request to have Justice Lodha Committee advice regarding streamlining the functioning of the cricket administrator.
