  1. Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit warns Commonwealth Games contractors Sorce: http://www.dnaindia.com/sport/report_delhi...ractors_1326046 New Delhi: With just over 285 days left for the mega 2010 commonwealth Games to begin in the Capital, the Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit is getting jittery because of the continuous delay in the completion of the projects. In the latest review done by the international experts of the Commonwealth Games Federation, though the officials were happy with the progress yet they raised concerns over the continuously extending deadlines of games projects. The officials have said that the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (JNS), which is the main venue for the event, is lagging behind and was supposed to be delivered by December 31 this year but the new deadline has been extended to June-end. Apart from JNS, the SP Mukherjee swimming venue is also delayed and the deadline has been extended again. "We are committed to make the Commonwealth Games 2010 a grand success. The government will not listen to any excuses for delay in projects completion and contractors responsible for delays would be blacklisted apart from other contractual actions against," said Dikshit. Dikshit further instructed the concerned officers and departments to take measures for completion of projects relating to CWG 2010 and work in tandem to avoid causing any delay. Although the games are just 10 months away in October 2010, the organisers are particularly worried that if the projects are delayed repeatedly, the Indian organisers would find it difficult to carry out test runs in the stadiums and hostels which might lead last minute problems and chaos.

Source: http://ibnlive.in.com/news/2010-games-gill...06664-5-23.html New Delhi: Sports Minister MS Gill on Monday visited the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium Complex and voiced confidence that it would be ready in time for the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games. The venue will host the gymnastic, wrestling and cycling events. The delay in constructing the Games venues led to Gill facing a volley of questions in Parliament last week. The minister said there was still time left for the venues to be readied for the Games scheduled in October next year. "I know we were behind schedule but we need to make sure that we do not compromise on quality and safety," he said. "Most of the work will be finished by December and the rest will be done by January or February. The Games are in October, so we still have a lot of time," Gill told reporters after inspecting the stadium. * Games 2010 work would complete in time, says Gill The work at the cycling velodrome began late and it raised speculation whether it can be finished on time. "There was a debate over the cycling velodrome but we started it only in January 2009 as there were some issues to be sorted out. I think the Sports Authority of India and all the engineers are doing a fine job," he added.

Dhyan Chand National Stadium, renovated venue for next year’s Commonwealth Games hockey competition, will be ready on December 15, nearly a month ahead of the test event – a four-nation tournament to be played from January 13 to 17, 2010. Organising Committee Commomwealth Games 2010 Delhi Chairman Mr. Suresh Kalmadi, MP, who visited the National Stadium on Friday said he was pleased with the way the stadium is turning out. “I must echo what the International Hockey Federation President Mr. Leandro Negre said. This will be the best hockey stadium in the world,” he said. The stadium will have all modern sports facilities. Mr. Kalmadi highlighted the fact that the 20,000-seater stadium would also have floodlights that will generate 2500 lux to cater to the needs of the high definition broadcast during the Commonwealth Games. “Not only will the spectators in the stadium will have better facilities but also those watching the telecast will enjoy the experience,” he said. “I am also delighted by the fact that the façade of the National Stadium, centerpiece of the 1951 Asian Games and the hockey venue for the 1982 Asian Games, has been retained,” he said. “The second pitch will be ready well in time for the World Cup to be staged here from February 28 to March 13.” The National Stadium is owned by the Sports Authority of India and the redesign work has been carried out by CPWD as per the venue brief provided by the Organising Committee. The total cost of project is Rs 201.11 crore. Mr Kalmadi pointed out that besides the two competition pitches and a warm-up pitch at the National Stadium, Delhi would have two more pitches at the Shivaji Stadium and at the Yamuna Sports Complex. “There is no doubt in my mind that the Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi will leave a lasting legacy not only for hockey but for Olympic sport,” he said.
