We're doing catching-up job, says Gill


A day after Commonwealth Games Federation president Miachael Fennell said he was ‘distressed’ as some of the venues would not be ready before June next year, Gill said the organisers were trying their best to catch up. “Whatever time has been lost since 2003, we are trying to make up,” Gill told reporters. “Fennell has said it again and again that a lot of progress has been made of late and we are doing the catching up job.”

Patting the engineers and the workers for working on a war footing, Gill said, “The engineers are working hard, give them some credit. The workers from Bihar, Orissa and Bengal are also working hard. It’s these people who are putting up the Games, not me.”

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit also admitted feeling nervous, even though she was confident that in the end, the capital would put up a good show. “I’m not feeling comfortable. I’m rather nervous, but I think we can do it,” she added.

A clear direction would be given on the final plans after the next Group of Ministers meeting on December 29.
