According to sources, the Public Works Department (PWD) has been asked to submit all documents related to the Games, including the Shunglu Committee report and the CAG report, to PWD Minister Manish Sisodia .
“We have started the process of going through the documents related to the Games. I am studying the Shunglu Committee report,’’ Sisodia said.
The Shunglu Committee had probed alleged irregularities in executing various infrastructure projects ahead of the Commonwealth Games.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday too said the government has started examining the files.
The BJP had earlier challenged the AAP to fulfil its promise of taking action against corruption by initiating a probe into the Games scandals.
“The AAP’s move to probe Games-related irregularities could lead to the Congress withdrawing support,’’ a source said.
The AAP sources, however, said since the party had never asked for support from anyone, it was not worried about the Congress withdrawing support.
The Congress was quick to deny that it would withdraw support to the government stating that they had nothing to hide. “This is another tactic by the AAP to divert attention from its poor governance. If Kejriwal wanted access to Commonwealth Games files, he could have done so by just filing an RTI plea. He can at best order a probe,’’ Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Lovely said.
Leader of the Congress Legislature Party Haroon Yusuf said his party had given all its responses to the Shunglu Committee and these could be accessed by anybody online.
He reiterated Lovely’s stand that they would not withdraw support to the AAP government over this matter.
The Delhi government had drawn a lot of flak for delay in completion of various infrastructure projects in the run-up to the Games.
The Commonwealth Games Village, Barapullah Elevated Road Phase-I and the Ring Road bypass were all constructed for the Games. Upgrading of various stadia was also taken up then.
