CWG OC reaffirms commitment to deliver successful Games

With less than 200 days to go for the much anticipated 2010 CWG, the Organising Committee (OC) today reaffirmed its commitment of delivering a successful event as it plans to launch a series of events to engage citizens of the capital in the run-up to the quadrennial multi-sports event, starting on October 3.

The 200 Days-To-Go celebrations, a combination of art, culture and festivities to offer a fun-filled day for Delhiites, would be held at the lawns around India Gate on March 21.

''As we get closer to the start of the Games, our sense of anticipation and excitement as well as our confidence that we can deliver the best Games ever grows,'' said Suresh Kalmadi, Chairman, Organising Committee Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2010.

''I take this opportunity to renew our commitment to producing a successful Games.'' Kalmadi also said the CWG Organising Committee was conscious of its own internal deadlines.

''We have set our own deadlines in planning and in getting together teams of personnel to ensure that we will meet our objective of delivering a world-class event that all participants - athletes, officials, partners, spectators and TV viewers - will enjoy,'' he said.

On the day of the event, dozens of leading artists, including Satish Gujral, will join hands in painting a 200-foot canvas around the theme: Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi - Game for Green.

Eminent personalities from the field of culture and sports will also be invited to paint the huge canvas that will be put on display at a suitable place during the Commonwealth Games.

At the same time, a kite flying festival will be held. Designed to portray the Delhi 2010 look and carrying the slogan 200 days to go, the kites will be flown by kite flyers and the citizens of Delhi.
