He also made it clear there is no change in schedule and said there should not be any concern over some delays in meeting deadlines in the readiness of the stadia to host the events.

Asked whether significance should be attached to the meeting since it came a day after Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh had met him for the first time as GoM chief, Reddy said, "We did take stock of various matters and are satisfied on pace of progress."

"Primarily the focus is on delivery of the Games and preparation of the various items required for the opening ceremony," he added.

The GoM was meeting for the first time after alleged corruption and financial irregularities rocked the Games and against the backdrop of missed deadlines for the readiness of several stadia in the Capital.
