While taking note of the delays, Chidamabaram set certain timelines for the Organising Committee and other authorities to complete the works.

The Delhi Police informed the Home Minister that once the venues are handed over to the Delhi Police, full security will be provided and there need not be any concern about security.

Chidamabaram directed that the minutes of the meeting be forwarded to the Organising Committee and others by today afternoon. eanwhile, the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, has called Sports Minister M S Gill and Union Urban Development Minister S. Jaipal Reddy for a meeting this evening to discuss and assess current preparations for the Commonwealth Games.

Dr Manmohan Singh has called the meeting in the wake of mounting international criticism of the country's preparedness to hold the event beginning on October 3.

Security concerns surrounding the Games have also been heightened in the wake of the shooting of two Taiwanese nationals travelling in a tourist bus outside the Jama Masjid in the walled city area here on Sunday.

The 12-day sporting extravaganza, which ends on October 14, is India's biggest sporting event since the 1982 Asian Games in New Delhi.
