After the hardware, comes the software!

The Organising Committee (OC) of the Commonwealth Games on Thursday asked the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) to 'beautify' the city.

The OC wants Delhi to look like a city ready for the Commonwealth Games.

It wants the MCD to re-paint all flyovers so that they sport a brand new look; it wants all official buildings to carry the CWG logo; it also wants the civic body to erect beautifully-decorated gates at all seven entry points to the national capital.

“The OC told us to take such measures so that Delhi looks like a city ready for the Games,” said Mayor Prithviraj Sawhney.

The MCD, on its part, was quick to come up with a budget proposal of Rs 7 crore, which it claims, should come from the Delhi government.

“There is a severe cash crunch in MCD. We would prepare a report and send it to the Delhi government tomorrow, asking for money,” Sawhney said. “We would take up this work only after our main work is over,” he added.
