NEW DELHI, Aug 7 � Main opposition BJP today appeared all set to corner the Government in Parliament and even force adjournment of the two Houses over a CAG report that has rapped the Delhi Government for irregularities in CWG projects and also dragged the PMO, reports PTI.

The party will finetune its strategy at a meeting of the NDA tomorrow, senior BJP leader SS Ahluwalia told reporters after the core group of the BJP Parliamentary Party met here under the leadership of LK Advani to decide its stand on various issues, including CWG and land acquisition.

�For the last few days, several corruption-related issues have come up. All such issues were discussed to finalise the party�s strategy. Tomorrow morning at the meeting of the NDA, we will take a final decision on what will be the strategy in the Parliament for the week,� he said.

Party sources said if the Government does not agree to its demand for a discussion on the CWG issue, the main Opposition is likely to force adjournment.

Asked if the CAG report slamming the Delhi Government for irregularities in the Commonwealth Games projects came up in the meeting, Ahluwalia evaded a direct reply saying, �You will know everything after tomorrow�s NDA meeting.�

The BJP has been demanding Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit�s resignation in the wake of the CAG report. �We have not retracted from our demand,� Ahluwalia said.

The CAG report on the CWG mess has said Suresh Kalmadi, who is jail for alleged irregularities, was appointed CWG Organising Committee chief at the behest of the PMO in 2004 despite �serious objections� from within the Government.

The auditor also blamed Dikshit for her �active involvement� for causing a loss of Rs 31.07 crore as it highlighted how wasteful expenditure worth several hundred crore of rupees was caused in conduct of the CWG through �irregularities�, �favouritism� and �bias� in award of contracts for projects.
