CWG CEO gives Kalmadi 10-day deadline

New Delhi: Commonwealth Games Federation President Mike Fennell has set the Organising Committee (OC) a 10-day deadline to put their house in order.

In an email interview with the Hindustan Times, Fennell also said that the corruption charges against the committee were a “major concern”.

“By the time of my next scheduled visit to Delhi on August 18-19, we have asked the Organising Committee to secure a report from each of the government agencies responsible for the delivery of venues that provides confirmation that all regulatory approvals including fire, health and safety have been secured for each venue,” he said.

This runs counter to Suresh Kalmadi’s repeated claim that getting the stadiums ready was not the OC’s responsibility.

He added that the federation also wanted the OC to provide fitness certificate from each of the agencies involved in the preparation of the stadiums – which are primarily, the central public works department, the state public works department, the Delhi Development Authority and the Sports Authority of India.
