We've been monitoring situation: Kalmadi

“The Ministry of Home Affairs and the Delhi Police have been working on making the best security arrangements for the athletes and visitors in the Commonwealth Games. Along with them, we are monitoring the situation in the wake of the recent incident in Bengalore and we are leaving no stone unturned to make sure that the capital is safe and secure,” Kalmadi said in a statement.

Kalmadi assured that the organisers were not taking any chances even though Commonwealth Games Federation is happy with the arrangements. “The Commonwealth Games Federation has been advised by its international security consultant that India is making the best security arrangements for the Games,” he said.

“CGF President Mike Fennell was also satisfied with the security arrangements,” he said. Kalmadi said the organisers held a number of security briefings for Heads of Missions of the Commonwealth countries and recently hosted a Chefs-de-Mission Seminar. “We have been planning the security arrangements for many years and Government has spared no expense in asking for the best equipment and personnel to be in place. Once all venues are ready, there would be another International Security Liaison Group Security Commanders’ conference.”
