The 2010 Commonwealth Games are the nineteenth Commonwealth Games, and the ninth to be held under that name. The Games are scheduled to be held in Delhi, India between 3 October and 14 October 2010. The games will be the largest multi-sport event conducted to date in Delhi and India generally, which has previously hosted the Asian Games in 1951 and 1982. The opening ceremony is scheduled to take place at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi. It will also be the first time the Commonwealth Games will be held in India and the second time the event has been held in Asia (after 1998 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia).
ARE WE READY FOR COMMONWEALTH GAMES?
EVEN THOUGH the low floor buses and AC low floor buses have hit the East Delhi roads, the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) bus stops, which are in existence since a very long time have been found to be in very bad shape. Many of the bus stops in West Delhi too, have either been broken or have been encroached.
Soem time back, the Delhi High Court had directed the DTC to remove all encroachments from bus stops.
The residents of Janakpuri, Vikaspuri, Uttam Nagar, Dabri, Naraina and Dwarka areas have drawn the attention of the transport department towards the pathetic conditions of the bus stops but their efforts have been futile, as the problem is still very much in existence.
