New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila
Dikshit Thursday met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and briefed
him about the preparations for the Commonwealth Games,
including "some of the difficulties" being faced.

"I just updated the Prime Minister about the
preparations for the Commonwealth Games," Dikshit told PTI on
the sidelines of a function here.

She said she also explained "some of the difficulties"
being faced by the city government while preparing for the
mega event.

With just three months left for the Commonwealth Games
and several projects running behind schedule, a worried Chief
Minister had yesterday assigned specific tasks to her Cabinet
colleagues to monitor the works and ensure their timely
completion.

At a meeting called to take stock of the status of the
Games-related projects, Dikshit also directed the ministers to
give a weekly status report to her on progress of the work.

She also directed civic agencies MCD and NDMC to
remove garbage and construction material at the earliest from
all construction sites before onset of monsoon as they could
block the drains.
