New Delhi: With just 16 days left for the Commonwealth Games and the historic walled city still donning a shoddy look, Delhi Government today directed the agencies concerned to complete the upgrading works in the areas on a war-footing.

Finance Minister A K Walia, chairing a meeting of top officials of MCD, Delhi Jal Board, PWD and power distribution companies, directed them to accomplish their assigned works as soon as possible.

Walia directed Shahjahanabad Development Board to make serious efforts to improve the image of the Chandni Chowk area. The Board was formed to redevelop and improve basic infrastructure in the old Delhi areas.

Representatives of traders' associations present in the meeting were told to put up uniform sign boards to ensure a better image of the area.

The agencies concerned were also asked to remove the hanging electricity wires in the areas.

"The walled city area will be visited by the tourists and it is very important to improve the look of the area before the sporting event," Walia said.

The Minister also directed the agencies to improve the drainage system in the area within 10 days. Walia exhorted the traders' representatives to make sincere efforts to make the area more attractive and beautiful before the Games.
