Delhi govt: Finish work or be blacklisted

Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday threatened that Delhi government would blacklist contractors who fail to complete Commonwealth Games projects on time. This comes two days after Commonwealth Games Federation chief Michael Fennell expressed disappointment over delays reported in the completion in some Games venues.

While Fennell had on Saturday referred to delays in the construction of Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, which is also the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies, and the SPM swimming pool complex, Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi claimed that the onus of completing projects lies with the respective agencies involved, besides the state government.

“We cannot afford to let down our nation and are committed to making the Games a grand success,” Diskhit told officers from the Delhi government during today’s annual meet. “The government will not listen to any excuses for delay in completion of projects; contractors responsible for these delays will be blacklisted, apart from other contractual actions (being taken) against them.”

Setting the sports event to be held next October as a priority for the government for the next eight months, Dikshit directed departments such as the PWD, Delhi Jal Board, the power distribution companies (discoms), and the Transport department to take measures to finish projects related to the event. She asked the agencies to work “in tandem” and avoid confusion and duplication of work.

Referring to the civility campaign about courtesy, civic sense and manners, launched by the government recently, Dikshit said: “As host city, we have to work together to make the Games a memorable event, which has provided (the government) an excellent opportunity to take up enormous projects simultaneously.”
