Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and two of her cabinet ministers are not happy with the speed the Commonwealth Games projects are being completed.
While Dikshit inspected the Barapulla elevated road, her two colleagues - Finance Minister Ashok Kumar Walia and Transport Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely - inspected several projects being taken up in east Delhi.
"We are worried (about the completion of the projects). The coordination with other agencies takes lot of time," Dikshit said. Meanwhile, her colleagues expressed their unhappiness at the speed several projects, especially streetscaping work was being carried out along the roads the athletes will take from the Games village to one of the sporting venues at the Yamuna sports complex.
"There is lot of work pending and time is very less. The monsoon has also arrived. We are really concerned," Walia said. "We have apprised the chief minister of the situation."
The two ministers were also concerned about mounds of debris and garbage lying on the roads leading to Games Village and Yamuna Sports Complex and along the National Highway 24.
“Regular monitoring is required. We will again visit the sites after 10 days,” Lovely said. Walia instructed the public works department to complete construction of parking site and Vikas Marg by July end.
