Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit visits CWG sites

With only 80 days left for the Oct 3-14 Commonwealth Games (CWG) and rising concerns over timely completion of projects, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Wednesday inspected the sites of the delayed projects and asked officials to complete them by the Aug 31 deadline.

An official said Dikshit inspected three-four sites, including the Barapullah Nallah elevated road corridor that connects the Games village with the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in south Delhi.

The elevated corridor, undertaken by the public works department (PWD), has missed several deadlines and the government has expedited the work on it as it is important for smooth travel of players and delegates during the Games.

Wednesday's visit to Barapullah Nallah was second by the chief minister in past 10 days.

Delhi PWD Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan and top government officials accompanied the chief minister her during the visit, the official added.

Dikshit had June 9 directed all the stakeholders of the CWG projects to complete the work related with the mega-event by Aug 31.

"Final touches are being given to the works at most of the sites which the chief minister visited," the official added.
