NEW DELHI, Aug 8 � The government and the BJP today locked horns over the CAG report on Commonwealth Games but senior ministers rejected any wrongdoing by the PMO or Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, contending that neither have been indicted, reports PTI.

Parliament was stalled by an aggressive Opposition with BJP taking the lead in demanding Dikshit�s resignation on the ground that she and her government had been thoroughly indicted by the CAG over several irregularities in the Games projects.

In the midst of a stand-off, the government agreed for a discussion tomorrow on the statement by Sports Minister Ajay Maken, whom the Opposition has accused of misleading Parliament on appointment of Suresh Kalmadi as CWG Organising Committee Chairman.

With both Houses of Parliament not transacting any business, the battle was fought outside with the BJP targeting the PMO, Dikshit and Maken and announcing that it would not allow the government �even single moment of relief� till an FIR is filed against Dikshit and is made to resign.

The Congress party and the government hit back and put up a strong defence of the PMO, Dikshit as well as Maken. The party went a step further and attacked the CAG on �leaks and squeaks� and questioned its jurisdiction on policy issues. Senior Ministers Kapil Sibal, Salman Khurshid and Ambika Soni contended that there has been no indictment of the PMO or Dikshit in the CAG report. There are only references to them and that does not mean indictment, they said.
