Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday exhorted citizens and students to imbibe civic sense to present the city in a better way to the world during next year's Commonwealth Games.

There is a need to imbibe civic sense among students and citizens of the city, Dikshit told a function organised to award best performing government schools.

In September, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram had asked residents to "behave as citizens of a big, good international city" during the mega sporting event.

Dikshit also appealed to the students and teachers to render their full cooperation in making the Games a great success.

While presenting Indira Awards 2009 to best schools, best teachers and students, she paid rich tributes to Indira Gandhi on her 92nd birth anniversary.

"The city government has left no stone unturned in providing necessary infrastructure in schools," she said, adding almost all the government schools in Delhi are being spruced up under the 'Roopantar' scheme.

"It is expected that all schools will get face lift by next year," she said.
