Reacting to Kirti Azad's claim of financial bunglings in the DDCA, its vice-president Chetan Chauhan said that all the material the BJP MP relied upon for his allegations were taken from the earlier findings on the basis of which S P Bansal was removed as president.

DDCA gave money to fraud companies without verification, says Kirti Azad

"This so called expose is on the basis of our findings, which were done by the three-member committee. It was due to those findings that SP Bansal was removed," Chauhan told PTI on Sunday after Azad addressed a press conference here.

Azad, who has been campaigning against alleged corruption in Delhi's cricket body, on Sunday, addressed a press conference in the Capital but did not name Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, under whose charge as president of DDCA he claimed there were financial bunglings.

"All this happened after Arun Jaitley's term in DDCA and it happened during SP Bansal's rein. Ye saara kaarnama unka hai (All these is his doing)."

Asked about the video footages of the "fake bills" shown by Azad during the press conference, Chauhan said, "Look, the work has been done for sure. It's not that the work did not happen, but the way it was allotted was wrong.

"I insist all these are in the fact-finding committee's report. Ye hamari report se nikaal rahe hain (All these are being taken out of our report)," he said.

The fact-finding committee comprised Sunil Jain, Vinod Garg, Salim Seth and Sidhartha Verma.
