Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and briefed him about the status of infrastructure projects being implemented ahead of the Commonwealth Games next year.

Dikshit drove to the Race Course Road residence of the Prime Minister for the meeting which was also attended by Union Sports Minister M S Gill.

Her meeting with Singh comes in the backdrop of criticism that some of the crucial infrastructure projects will miss the October 2010 deadline.

Sources said the Chief Minister has briefed Singh about the status of the Games related projects and where it stands now.

The Dikshit government has been facing flak for delay in construction of virtually every infrastructure project being undertaken by the Delhi government for the big sports event.

Miffed with the slow pace of preparation for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Commonwealth Games Federation President Michael Fennel had last month sought the Prime Minister's intervention to put things in order.
