Pakistan today joined the list of countries complaining about the Commonwealth Games facilities, saying a lot still needs to be done to ensure that their athletes are comfortable at the Athletes' Village.

Pakistan High Commissioner Shahid Malik, who visited the Village to take stock of the arrangements being made for his country's athletes, also met the Organising Committee officials here.

"There is lot need to be done. Our concern is that when our athletes come they should be comfortable. I can't pinpoint (the problem)," he told reporters after inspecting the facilities in the Games' Village.

Malik, however, hoped that India would go full throttle to ensure a successful Games.

"It is a very big event that Indian government is holding and I'm confident that they would do all (to ensure successful conduct of Games)," he said.

"Our players have not come yet. They will be arriving by tomorrow. We have got a very large contingent," he said.

Many countries, including Australia, England, Malaysia, South Africa and Botswana have complained about the facilities at the Athletes' Village terming it "filthy and unlivable".
