We can Host Events at CWG Venues in an Hour: Kalmadi

New Delhi, Sep 12 (PTI): Several missed deadlines later, the venues of the Commonwealth Games are now completely ready, said Organising Committee Chairman Suresh Kalmadi, claiming that the preparedness is such that events can now be held at the stadiums on an hour's notice.

Kalmadi brushed aside concerns about leaking roofs and waterlogging at the stadiums' gates and declared competition venues ready for the October 3 to 14 event.

"We can host events within an hour (at the stadiums). We have built the stadiums, keeping athletes in mind," Kalmadi said.

Talking about the Thyagaraj Stadium, which will host the netball competition, Kalmadi said, "We have one of the greenest stadium in the world. There were grave apprehensions here, rain and all but everything is ready and we are set to hold a very good event.
