New Delhi, Dec 21: After offering 'prayers' to ensure successful organisation of the Commonwealth Games 2010 in the state, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has resorted to threatening the contractors.
Raising concern over the delay in projects related to the CWG 2010, the CM on Monday, Dec 21 threatened blacklisting of contractors failing to complete the construction in time.
"We cannot afford to let down our nation and we are committed to make Commonwealth Games 2010 a grand success," Dikshit said while speaking at a function in the capital.
"The government will not listen to any excuses for delay in projects completion and contractors responsible for delays would be blacklisted apart from other contractual actions (being taken) against them," she added.
With the mega event just eight months away, the CM has directed all the concerned departments to take steps for completion of projects and to work in tandem in order to avoid any confusion which may cause delay.
Further, speaking on the civility campaign launched by the government for awareness about courtesy, etiquettes and good manners, Dikshit said, "As the host city, we have to work together to make the prestigious Games a memorable event which has provided excellent opportunity to take up enormous projects simultaneously. The developed infrastructure will become an integral part of legacy."
