New Delhi, July 30 (ANI): Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Friday said the 2010 Commonwealth Games were very much on track and that there was no need to panic.

“The work is going on and I will take care of it as Chief Minister. There is no need to panic. I believe these will be the best ever Games. The way we are going, we will be able to save money rather than overspend,” said Dikshit.

She, however, refused to comment on allegations of corruption in the Games and reports that the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) found alleged irregularities in several Commonwealth Games related works being carried out by civic and construction agencies.

The 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi is being touted as the biggest international sporting event to be hosted by India since the 1982 Delhi Asian Games.

Its success is being seen as the first step for India to bid for bigger events. (ANI)
