Scots Games chief confident about Delhi hosting Commonwealth Games successfully

The head of Scotlands Commonwealth Games team has said he is confident that it will be able to cope with all eventualities in Delhi amid increasing concerns over infrastructure and corruption.


Edinburgh, Aug.4 : The head of Scotland's Commonwealth Games team has said he is confident that it will be able to "cope with all eventualities" in Delhi amid increasing concerns over infrastructure and corruption.

Jon Doig, chief executive of Commonwealth Games Scotland (CGS), said he has been reassured by his counterparts in India that "everything will be ready on time," despite mounting criticism of the event.

With just two months to go before the opening ceremony, the final preparations for the 2010 Games have been tarnished by construction problems and claims of financial impropriety.

Doig, however, said a CGS support team has visited Delhi on the number of occasions, and is prepared for any problems, which may arise, The Scotsman reports.

The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) has asked for clarification amid signs that some venues are already showing signs of construction faults.

"We are concerned about the implication of the CVC report. We have written to the OC (Organising Committee) following the report, basically saying that we need assurances from the venue owners ... that all venues are fully compliant with government of India laws," CGF chief executive Mike Hooper said.
