Under attack for delay in various projects related to the Commonwealth Games, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today said her Government will complete all work "well in time" although it was little "nervous" about the preparation.

"We are satisfied as well nervous about the preparation for the prestigious event," Dikshit told reporters replying to a volley of questions about delay in implementation of various infrastructure projects in the city.

Asked about Commonwealth Games Federation President Michael Fennel seeking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's intervention to put things in order, she said the CGF chief has every right to meet Singh.

"He (Fennel) met me one month ago and conveyed his concern about the power situation. I told him that the city will have adequate power during the event," Dikshit after a Cabinet meeting which is understood to have discussed the issue.

On the recent criticism by the CAG about slow progress of the infrastructure projects, she said the audit body had prepared the report last month back based on status of works six months back.

"They have the right to criticise. But we are working very hard. We are looking at all alternatives. Nation's pride is involved with the event and we will do everything possible to make it a success," she said.
