"The DUAC [Delhi Urban Arts Commission] has accorded for the
construction of the Games Village, but the underground tunnel has met
with some opposition. We are working out alternative ways to solve this

Another argument-ridden meeting between the Delhi Urban Arts Commission
(DUAC) and Delhi government last week failed to make any breakthrough
with regard to Commonwealth Games projects. Despite being pulled up by
the Union Urban Development Ministry, DUAC is still putting numerous
riders for the clearance of the tunnel road and the East-West corridor,
including the suggestion that the corridor be taken through Rajghat, a
national monument. Hitting back, the government wondered how such a
suggestion could be made by a body which is supposed to protect national
heritage. The DUAC has objected to the corridor because it is an
elevated stretch. With the government also adamant on its stand, the
possibility of meeting the 2010 deadlines is fast diminishing.
