According to Sheila Dikshit Nervousness is Natural

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Wednesday said “nervousness” is natural until the Commonwealth Games get over on October 14 and urged the media to highlight the “good things” in the capital ahead of the mega sporting event.

The Delhi government and other agencies responsible for Games-related projects are under fire over missed deadlines and the recent corruption charges. Dikshit, talking to reporters outside the Delhi assembly on Wednesday, said nervousness is natural as nobody knows the future, but at the same time “good things” needed to be showcased to give people confidence.

Asked about this year’s monsoon, where Delhi has received more than its normal share of rains so far, Dikshit said the showers have led to a rise in the level of underground water and the city’s green cover is “smiling”.
