Some Commonwealth Games Projects Running Behind Schedule.

Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit assures that there is no need to worry

Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today admitted that some projects of the 2010 Commonwealth Games were running behind schedule but said there was no need to be skeptical or cynical about the preparations.

"There are some projects which are behind schedule, while some are before time and some are on time. I do not want to name them but there is no need to be skeptical or cynical about it," Dikshit said on the sidelines of the launch of the Indian Premier Leagues' Delhi Dare devil member club here.

"There is still one and a half year to go and I am sure we will able to host the event properly," she added.

Dikshit also scotched apprehensions that there was no co-ordination among different committees of the Games.

"Many organization are involved in building the infrastructure in Delhi and it is not only about hosting the Games it is also about managing the event properly in Delhi.

"There is an impression that there is no co-ordination among the DDA, MCD, Delhi government, Sport Ministry and other committees. There are two group of ministers who are looking at the preparation of the Games and there is enough time, so I am confident," she said.
