CWG shocker: stray dog found on athlete bed

New Delhi: The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) has presented photo evidence of a stray dog jumping on a bed in the Games Village. The CGF now wants all stray dogs to be removed from the Village site.

CNN-IBN has access to the details of the meeting between the delegates and the organisers of the Commonwealth Games, where the delegates raised questions about the unfinished projects of the Games Village.

The meeting, which took stock of the progress of various unfinished projects, also deliberated on the shortcomings pointed out by Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) President Michael Fennell about the Games village, said top officials.

Fennell said that the final preparations for the Village have been a concern since the federation visited the residential zone on September 15. He condemned the Games village and reports quoted Fennell as saying that the athletes' village is seriously compromised.

Moreover, delegates from England and Scotland say they saw workers sleeping on beds meant for players

A Canadian delegate has said the external parts of the towers were full of "rubbish" and exposed wires posed a risk.

While, delegates from England and Scotland say they saw workers sleeping on beds which are meant for players.

But the Organising committee of the Games does not seem too worried. They held a news conference on Tuesday evening and claimed there were no major concerns.

"We are confident of completing the cleaning of the towers in the Games Village. We have recieved a letter from Fennel about his concerns. We understand the concerns of the member countries but the situation is under control," said Oranizing Commmittte General Secretary Lalit Bhanot.

"We are looking into all the concerns and it will be solved before the arrival of the athletes, " said Bhanot.
