'CWG will be a proud moment for the country'

His remarks came a day after taking steps to ensure that holes in CWG preparations were plugged and a close look was kept on everything being done for the event.

The prime minister in his Independence-Day speech hoped that “the Commonwealth Games will start in Delhi after about one-and-a -half months. This will be a proud moment for the whole country and especially for Delhi.

“I am convinced that all our countrymen will treat the Games as a national festival and will leave no stone unturned to make them a success. The successful organisation of Commonwealth Games would be another signal to the world that India is rapidly marching ahead with confidence,” said the prime minister.

Meanwhile, in accordance with the decision taken after the prime minister reviewed the situation on Saturday, the Group of Ministers on CWG held its meeting on Sunday to chalk out its plan of action to oversee the ongoing event preparations.

Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit echoed the confidence expressed by the prime minister and said in her Independence speech, “The fortnight-long event from October 3 to 14 will be the finest in the history.”
