"Somebody told me that nowadays people are talking about only one thing in Delhi. I asked, ''what is it". Then he replied, 'Commonwealth Games." After that I said, 'this Games has become a joke"," stated Pawar, while addressing a public gathering.
"Nowadays, I am hearing a story that due to severe criticism, the chief of the organising committee decided to commit suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling, but ironically the ceiling came down. May be the quality of ceiling was not good," he added.
Earlier Kalmadi said he was happy with the progress made in the Games Village as it got ready to welcome the first of the 7000 athletes and team officials who will reside there during the CWG.
The Games are scheduled to be held in New Delhi, India from 3 Oct. The games will be the largest multi-sport event conducted to date in Delhi and India generally, which has previously hosted the Asian Games in 1951 and 1982.
