CWG: PMO denies ministers pulled up

The Prime Minister`s Office (PMO) Saturday dismissed reports that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had pulled up his Cabinet colleagues in charge of the Commonwealth Games.

New Delhi: The Prime Minister`s Office (PMO) Saturday dismissed reports that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had pulled up his Cabinet colleagues in charge of the Commonwealth Games.

"The Prime Minister has seen reports in a section of the
media that he `pulled up` the Group of Ministers (GoM) in
charge of Commonwealth Games. Such reports are misleading,"
PM`s media adviser Harish Khare said.

The Prime Minister appreciates the difficult job the
GoM has on its hand and he has been encouraging the ministers
and officials concerned to work together extra time to make
the games a success, he said.

He was reacting to reports in the media that Singh had
pulled up Sports Minister MS Gill and Urban Development
Minister S Jaipal Reddy, who is also head of the GoM, on the
preparations for the Commonwealth Games.
