Fennell's apprehensions were based on old CAG report

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

New Delhi, Sep 14 (IANS) A four-month old Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report seems to have alarmed Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) president Michael Fennell so much that he shot off a letter to the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) to seek the intervention of the Prime Minister in the organisation of the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

A top official of the organising committee told IANS that the CAG report had details of last year's preparation but development work including construction of venues and organisation have improved rapidly in the last few month. The Commonwealth Games will be held from Oct 3-14.    
     
 "The CAG report was four months old and the details were of last year's progress. Fennel's observation were based on last year's development work. But this year, specially in the last four months, we have done well in all aspects of organisation and the venues will be ready well before the Commonwealth Games start," the official said.    
     
 The official said that better co-ordination between the organising committee, which is being headed by IOA chief Suresh Kalmadi, and the government would have avoided such situation.     
     
 "Kalmadi will meet sports minister M.S. Gill and will give him a detailed update on the development work of the Commonwealth Games," he said.
