delhi Updated: Jul 01, 2010 15:23 IST

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and briefed him about the preparations for the Commonwealth Games, including "some of the difficulties" being faced.

"I just updated the Prime Minister about the preparations for the Commonwealth Games," Dikshit said on the sidelines of a function in Delhi.

She said she also explained "some of the difficulties" being faced by the city government while preparing for the mega event.

With just three months left for the Commonwealth Games and several projects running behind schedule, a worried Chief Minister had yesterday assigned specific tasks to her Cabinet colleagues to monitor the works and ensure their timely completion.

At a meeting called to take stock of the status of the Games-related projects, Dikshit also directed the ministers to give a weekly status report to her on progress of the work.

She also directed civic agencies MCD and NDMC to remove garbage and construction material at the earliest from all construction sites before onset of monsoon as they could block the drains.
