In yet another move aimed at needling outside ally Congress, the AAP government on Thursday directed its Anti-Corruption Bureau to probe a number of Commonwealth Games related projects that were implemented during the reign of Sheila Dikshit.
The government has particularly asked ACB to probe the alleged irregularities in street light projects in which the Prime Minister-appointed Shunglu Committee had questioned certain decisions made by Dikshit.
“We will ensure thorough investigation of all cases of corruption in CWG projects,” Law Minister Somnath Bharti said.

He said ACB has been told to examine all cases of irregularities but maintained that the probe will not target “any particular individual”.
“The probe is not being carried out to target any individual. We will ensure a free and fair probe,” he said.
The Shunglu Committee had found procedural violations by then Delhi Lt Governor Tejinder Khanna and Dikshit for alleged inadequacies in executing certain projects related to 2010 Commonwealth Games.
Dikshit had trashed the findings of the report and had sent a point-by-point rebuttal to the Centre.
After assuming charges, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced that his government will investigate all corruption cases, particularly the CWG scam.
In the 70-member Delhi Assembly, eight Congress MLAs are giving outside support to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government which currently has 27 MLAs after expulsion of rebel legislator Vinod Kumar Binny. The government has also been given outside support by a Janata Dal(United) MLA and an Independent.
