Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit, who's been facing criticism for running behind schedule on projects for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, met prime minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday to submit a progress report.
This was Dikshit's first meeting with the PM afterGames Federation chief Michael Fennell wrote to him expressing concern overDelhi's ability to host the Games from October 3, 2010. However, Dikshit gave an assurance that all efforts are being taken to make the sporting extravaganza a great success and that all the projects will be completed well in time.
Dikshit told the PM that her administration was doing its best to complete the projects before the deadline, but said Fennell's letter should not have been "leaked" to the media.
Dikshit has been upset with the letter that raised doubts whether Delhi would match the standards set by earlier hosts Melbourne and Manchester.
After the review meeting, the prime minister asked the sports minister to coordinate with Indian Olympic Association officials to fine-tune preparations.
