The Shivaji Stadium in the centre of New Delhi, very close to Connaught Place was to be renovated and ready for the Common Wealth Games. But at the time of the CWG games, the renovation was not even 30%. The ground was dug, some walls had started coming up, but nothing more. The games planned to be organised in this stadium was diverted to other stadiums.
It is almost one year after the games are over. But still the Shivaji Stadium is not completed. Work is going at snail’s pace. Nobody knows when it will be completed. I was told by a person that the stadium is completed as per records and the contractor already paid. May be truth also. The irregularities, mismanagement and corruption were so much that anything might have happened.
