Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010

Commonwealth games are coming up and very less time is with us (Indians) to make arrangements. Till now Delhi city is not capable and is not ready for this International Sporting Event on many parameters like non availability of hotels rooms, stadiums infrastructure, roads, transport arrangement, beautification of city, awareness & attitude of Delhiities to become host of this event, security arrangements, emergency response team and disaster management, sports village etc.

Some important questions like what progress is going at sports village and how much time it will take to complete it. It must be ready in 30 days advance. While constructing sports village at River Yamuna or land near it the river must be protected from every angle .  The cleaning ission of Yamuna must be also kept in mind so that we can present a clean and beautiful river to the visitors .Although Delhi Metro progress is satisfactory but recent accidents on various sites of metro raised a question of its quality and safety. How the teams/sportspersons/athletes will commute from their accommodation place to stadium. Some guidelines/advice booklet must be drafted / printed in various international languages for foreign commuters.

All security agencies must have co-ordination between themselves so that their is no loophole and anyone do not feel harassed. Police must behave politely but make sure that security is not at stake. Intelligence agencies must behave more accurately for gathering of information and provide timely and right inputs to their concerned agencies.

Volunteers must be engaged from different government  / private colleges who helps the visitors. NGO should also be advised to work in their respective field during games. Also it must be make sure that during VVIP / VIP commuting situation do not goes out of control.

Although I want every thing should go normal but still government must prepare a plan for steps to be taken in case of any emergency like natural disaster, terror strike, swine flu attack, flood, earthquake, etc. I don't know whether government has issued any instruction to government/private hospitals, CATS to treat people especially sportspersons and foreigners.

AND MOST IMPORTANT ALL DEVELOPMENTS MUST BE DONE ACORDING TO  ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY TECHNIQUES.

LET US MAKE DELHI A BEST INTERNATIONAL CITY.
