Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Sunday admitted some delays in the execution of Commonwealth Games projects but pledged to hold "a spectacular show" next year.


Speaking to reporters at the end of a two-day visit to Thailand, he insisted that whatever the problems in the preparations of the Games, they would be resolved. 

"Whatever mechanisms have now been put in place will work effectively," he said, answering a question on the Commonwealth Games partly in Hindi and partly in English. 

"I am fully confident that the Games will take place. Those who come to see the Games will see a spectacular show." 

The prime minister avoided giving an answer when he was asked if there was a proposal to make Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi in charge of the Commonwealth Games. 

The Commonwealth Games 2010 will be held in New Delhi Oct 3-14.
