New Delhi, Aug 2 (IANS) The “morale” of Delhi government officials involved in Commonwealth Games projects has been hit by a Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) report on irregularities and corruption in the ongoing works for the mega-event, a senior official said Monday.
Talking to a group of journalists, Chief Secretary Rakesh Mehta said “unnecessary panic” was created and it affected the “morale” of the officials.

A point-by-point reply has also been given to the vigilance body by the officials concerned, he said.

“However, we have asked all the officials linked with the Games projects to continue with their duties without any fear,” Mehta added.

The Public Works Department (PWD) of the state government is engaged in the task to beautify the city infrastructure ahead of the Games.

A CVC report has put 16 Commonwealth Games projects, including stadia upgradation and road widening, under the scanner for irregularities amounting to more than Rs.2,500 crore.

Of them, six projects are being done by the PWD.
