Even as controversy surrounds the Commonwealth Games for alleged corruption and tardy progress in construction of projects, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday expressed satisfaction over the preparations for the mega event and said it will be a successful one.

"I reviewed the situation with Cabinet Secretary yesterday and I am satisfied that all necessary preparations will be in place by the deadline fixed," he told reporters in New Delhi.

"We look forward to a very successful games," Singh said when asked about corruption in the projects for the Games which will be held in October this year.
