With the Central Vigilance Commission widening its probe into alleged bunglings in Commonwealth Games-related projects, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday asked all departments of the Delhi government to keep relevant documents ready and "fully cooperate" with investigators.

Dikshit, who chaired a high-level meeting attended by her cabinet colleagues, said records of all expenditure incurred as part of preparations for Games should be kept ready so that they could be made available to any probe agency wanting to scrutinise them.

"The chief minister asked the departments concerned to keep all the relevant documents ready," a top source told PTI.

Various agencies of the Delhi government, including the public works department, had spent over Rs 16,000 crore to enhance city infrastructure ahead of the Games. Earlier, an analysis by the chief technical examination wing of CVC had found alleged financial and administrative irregularities in 16 construction and procurement projects.

Six of them were done by the public works department, three by the municipal corporation of Delhi, two each by the central public works department, Delhi Development Authority, New Delhi Municipal Council and one by RITES, a Government of India enterprise.

Asked whether his department has received any fresh communication from the CVC, PWD minister Raj Kumar Chauhan only said he has issued instruction to fully cooperate with the CVC.

"It is a routine communication and I have directed my officials to cooperate with all probe agencies. We have nothing to hide. We will extend full cooperation to the CVC," he said.

Another top official said the concerned departments, which were involved in Games projects, have been told to prepare detailed report of their expenditure.

The CVC has already directed all agencies concerned to submit their reports by the month-end.
