PM directs Games organisers to ensure success

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has directed all those involved in Commonwealth Games preparations that everything should be done to ensure success of the mega sporting event, Minister of State in the PMO Prithviraj Chavan said today.

A day after Singh took stock of the preparedness with union ministers and others involved, Chavan said there was a concern over pull-out threats and hoped that everything would go well.

"With only a few days left, the Prime Minister took personal initiative saying that no stone should be left unturned to see that we successfully conduct the Games," the minister said.

Singh held a meeting with Urban Development Minister Jaipal Reddy, Sports Minister MS Gill, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Lt Governor Tejinder Khanna yesterday to review the preparedness of the Commonwealth Games.(PTI)
