Games Village Developer Distances Themselves From Controversy

Emaar-MGF, developer of the Commonwealth Games Village, has distanced itself from the controversy surrounding the sporting extravaganza, according to a report.

“The project was completed and handed over to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) and Organizing Committee (OC) in June,” a spokesperson for Emaar-MGF, which is a joint venture owned by Indian lender MGF and Dubai-based Emaar Properties, told Dubai’s 7DAYS newspaper. “The OC is responsible for the furniture and fixtures in the apartments and the temporary overlays in the Village. The current controversy is due to housekeeping issues arising out of work being carried out by the OC,” the spokesperson added.
