Suresh Kalmadi - a PR nightmare for the government - is about to gift some more sleepless nights. Mr Kalmadi, who served as the Chairman of the Organising Committee for the Commonwealth Games, is in jail for corruption. Now, the government's auditor has questioned the decision of the Prime Minister's Office to make Mr Kalmadi the head the Organising Committee (OC). A report by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), to be presented in Parliament in the next few days, states, "In our opinion , the decision of the PMO for appointing Suresh Kalmadi as Chairman of the OC facilitated the conversion of the originally envisaged government - owned OC into a body effectively outside the government control."
