Delhi Lt Governor Tejendra Khanna on Friday urged people in the national capital to "project themselves in the best way" and set a good example during the Commonwealth Games.
Speaking at the ceremonial launch of ticketing for the Oct 3-14 mega event here, Khanna said: "I am sure that Delhiites would be able to project themselves in the best way and would set a good example before the guests so that they can carry a good picture of Delhi with them.
"In this age of globalisation, the whole world looks up to India and expects a good leadership. Everybody outside India is eager to learn about the way we live... our sense of brotherhood, the feeling of oneness, the way we support and help each other. They would arrive in Delhi with these perceptions and I am confident that Delhiites will set a good example."
Khanna said the Delhi government had spent Rs.15,000 crore in building international level infrastructure for the Games.
"Many flyovers, roads have been worked on. The Metro, which was earlier only available to a limited number of people in a limited area, is now spread across Delhi and also the neighbouring states," he said.
The Commonwealth Games Organising Committee is expecting to receive over 1 lakh spectators and delegates during the Games.
