‘Games works running behind time'

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Former Delhi BJP president Harsh Vardhan has accused the Sheila Dikshit Government of deliberately delaying construction work relating to the Commonwealth Games. In a statement, Dr. Vardhan said it was decided eight years ago that the Games would be organised in Delhi and at that time too Ms. Dikshit was the Chief Minister.

“Preparations for the Games are being done in a hasty manner and there is no proper planning for organising the mega event. That is why the Chief Minister is nervous about the Games,” he said.

Reeling off statistics, Dr. Vardhan claimed that only 19 per cent of work relating to improvement and strengthening of 5 {+t} {+h} Avenue Road in front of Mehr Chand Marg and 30 per cent of Bhishma Pitamah Marg leading up to Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium has been carried out. Besides 32 per cent of work for improvement and up-gradation of Surajkund Road and 38 per cent of Shooting Range Road leading up to Dr. Karni Singh Shooting Range has been done. Similarly, 36 per cent of improvement and strengthening of works on Maharshi Valmiki Marg leading towards Tyagraj Stadium and 25 per cent of Dilip Singh Marg leading towards Siri Fort Complex has been carried out.”
