Delhi Games’ village ‘ready by Wednesday’

| 26/09/2010

(BBC): The Chief Minister of Delhi, Sheila Dixit, says the athletes’ village for the Commonwealth Games won’t be finished until Wednesday. The news follows mounting criticism over India’s preparations for the Games, which open next Sunday. About 4,000 people are working around the clock to get the village ready, as competitors from across the world begin to arrive. Athletes from Kenya, Scotland and India are now living in the village. But some competitors have already pulled out of the Games after the accommodation was described as filthy, uninhabitable and unsafe. Ms Dixit visited the site on Sunday to check on progress.

After talking to officials she said work was "on track".
