Expressing unhappiness over the state of residential facilities for their athletes, diplomats from Africa's Commonwealth nations are to visit the Games Village for the second time on Sunday.


On Saturday, diplomats from all the participating Commonwealth nations were taken for a visit to the Village, but the African countries complained that their accommodation was not clean or at par with that provided to other major nations. 

"All the African diplomats from the participating countries will be visiting the village at 5 pm. We will take a decision at that time," a senior diplomat from a African country said. 

Earlier, Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi had assured that there will be "no discrimination" against the African countries in allotment of accommodation.
