Guess which VIP got the loudest cheers at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium during the Commonwealth Games opener? Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.

A loud roar went up in the 65,000-strong packed stadium when Suresh Kalmadi, chairman of the Organising Committee, and Mike Fennel, chairman of the Commonwealth Games Federation, referred to her in their speeches.

Dikshit, who has been chief minister since 1998, has been one of the key persons responsible for organising the Oct 3-14 Games.
