Supreme court
New Delhi, The Supreme Court slammed government over the Commonwealth games preparations and for the rampant corruption found in the CWG 2010 projects.

The court also questioned the amount of Rs 70,000 crores being spent for organising the Games and said the footbridge at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium collapsed like a pack of cards.

"In this country, payments are made without work being done. Newly constructed bridge collapsed like a pack of cards. 70,000 crores are involved. There is rampant corruption in the country. We cannot shut our eyes. Till Oct 15, Common wealth is a public purpose-thereafter, everything will become private purpose," observed the court.

Earlier BJP and NDA leaders had also strongly criticised Organising Committee head Suresh Kalmadi, sports minister MS Gill and the Delhi Government for the shortcomings and corruption in the CWG 2010 projects.

Opposition even staged a walkout in the Lok Sabha during the last session of Parliament, when Gill said during his presentation on the CWG debate that any information needed can be sought through an RTI application.
