Former Delhi mayor and BJP leader Arti Mehra on Sunday alleged that the Prime Minister's Office had ignored the Municipal Corporation of Delhi's suggestion to have single window clearance system for Commonwealth Games infrastructure which delayed the projects.
"I had asked Prime Minister to have single window system to clear CWG related files. There was only one meeting over the matter and thereafter there were no meetings," Mehra, who held the office of the civic body from 2007 to 2009, told a news conference in Panaji.
She said the work to create infrastructure began late and even after that the files for various clearances were pending in central government departments.
She took charge as BJP's Goa desk incharge and was down in the coastal state to interact with the leaders.
The BJP leader said she had also suggested a special PMO, dedicated to CWG, be set up.
"The office was set up one-and-a-half years ago after much delay," she said.
Mehra said there are major faults in all the 19 stadiums.
"Water is dripping everywhere. The roads are caving in. CWG were pride of India, which is now being compromised," the Mayor said, adding "The situation is dangerous".
