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.
