CWG preparations: Kalmadi meets Prime Minister

IOA President Suresh Kalmadi

The meeting assumes significance as preparations for the Games, scheduled in October next year, have been criticised by the Commonwealth Games Federation chief Mike Fennell in a letter to the organising committee.

Fennell has also sought a audience with Prime Minister to discuss Delhi's preparations.
In a damning report on the capital's preparations, the CGF has feared that the Games could end up being a partial failure.

A defiant Kalmadi has, however, maintained all along that the city would be ready to host the event despite admitting that Fennell's letter has served as a wake-up call.
Even Delhi's chief minister Sheila Dikshit has conceded to being nervous about the
Games' build-up.
