Shahjahanpur, Aug 10: After Rajya Sabha MP Mani Shankar Aiyar, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh has now spoken on the Delhi Commonwealth Games 2010 row.

The Congress leader in-charge of UP opined that Commonwealth Games (CWG) Organising Committee (OC) chairman, Suresh Kalmadi should step down on moral grounds if his name figures in a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) prima facie case.

“If his name is in a CBI prima facie case, then on moral grounds he should resign," he said.

Earlier Mr Aiyar, a senior Congressman and former sport minister, had sparked off a row saying that he would be happy if the Delhi Commonwealth Games would turn out to be a failure.

As he claimed, the MP opened up a "can of worms" as his statement was followed by an eruption of a slew of corruption charges against the CWG organisers.
