No Deadlines Now, Delhi To Be Ready Before The CWG: Sheila Dikshit

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit admitted to the fact that the work for Delhi Games would not be complete in time, despite missing numerous deadlines, due to the heavy rains. “CWG work will be completed in 10-15 days within the end of monsoon. The work has been delayed due to the heavy rains”, Dikshit said in a press conference. After Union Sports Minister MS Gill, Dikshit too invoked God for timely completion of the unfinished Commonwealth Games projects.

With several key infrastructure projects yet to be completed, Dikshit hoped “by grace of God” her Government will be able to complete all the works before October 3, the day the event begins.

“It has been raining very heavily which has affected our works. If rain stops and sun comes out then we should be able to complete all the work by September 10. Otherwise, we will have to extend the deadline.”

“But we are confident by grace of God we will be able to finish everything before October 3,” she told reporters.

Earlier this month during a discussion about the preparation for the event, Gill had told Rajya Sabha: “Have faith in India, India will get there….God is with us.”

After extending the time-frame a few times in the past, the Delhi government had fixed August 31 as the latest deadline for completing Games projects. But the current picture is clearly seen.
