Sheila Dikshit briefs Manmohan Singh on preparations for Commonwealth Games

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit met Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on Thursday and briefed him about the preparations for the 2010 Commonwealth Games.


New Delhi, July 1 : Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit met Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on Thursday and briefed him about the preparations for the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

"I just updated the Prime Minister about the preparations for the Commonwealth Games," said Dikshit on the sidelines of a function here today.

She said she also discussed the difficulties being faced by the Delhi Government, while preparing for the mega event.

Earlier on Wednesday, Dikshit had assigned specific tasks to her Cabinet colleagues to monitor the works and ensure their timely completion.

Besides directing the Ministers to give a weekly status report to her on progress of the work, she also directed the civic agencies Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) and New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) to remove garbage and construction material at the earliest from all construction sites before onset of monsoon as they could block the drains.

India is expecting two million tourists in New Delhi for the Games, as well as about 10,000 athletes from 71 teams representing 54 Commonwealth member states.

Construction delays have raised fears that the venues for the Commonwealth Games may not be ready on time, potentially embarrassing host India, which hopes the Games would showcase its rising economic power.
