Racing against time to clean up the Games Village for the foreign athletes to check in, Delhi Chief Minister on Friday said the sanitary condition at the residential areas of the much-criticised Village has improved a lot from the state of affairs a couple of days back.

After visiting the Games Village on Friday, Dikshit said people are working day and night to make sure the clean up job of the Village is completed fast.

"Situation is much better now ... the workers will work throughout the night and make sure everything happens on time," she said.

"The residential towers are much cleaner now after professional people like the five star hotel association and others started looking after the housekeeping," said Dikshit asked about the sorry state of affairs shown in the pictures of the residential quarters in the newspapers and television.

She said the workers were doing their best to pump out stagnant water from the basement of residential towers.

"About the stagnant water we are doing what we can ... and that is a tough problem. But there will be enough repellents to see the mosquitoes do not harm anybody," said the chief minister.

Asked about the English players' reportedly staying at another place before shifting after the Games Village is ready, she said, "They are welcome ... they can come and stay for themselves here."
