Delhi Chief Minister and Organising Committe Chairman blame developers for delay in getting the Commonwealth Games Village ready on time

With the 19th Commonwealth Games just less than a week away and the athletes beginning to trickle in, the blame game for the mess at the Commonwealth Games Village continues.

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and Organising Committee Chairman Suresh Kalmadi now blame Emaar MGF for the delay in getting the Village ready, reports ‘Gulf News’.

“The developer handed us the first 18 towers in time which are in top condition. We were handed over the rest of the 16 towers very late which has delayed our job,” Kalmadi was quoted by Indian media as saying.

Emaar MGF is a joint venture between the UAE’s Emaar Properties and India’s MGF Development.
