The turmoil prevailing in the neighbouring countries has made it necessary for India to be extremely careful about the security arrangements for next year's Commonwealth Games, according to Organising Committee, Chairman, Suresh Kalmadi. "We have to be very careful about the security. There would be a General Assembly of all the Commonwealth countries, who would be meeting in Delhi in October this year. We would have to satisfy them about the security arrangements," Kalmadi told reporters."We have the Governor of Delhi, who is heading the security aspects. We also have the Commonwealth Federation sending us reports and we are also sending them monthly updates about the security.Kalmadi said that the first task for the organisers would be to allay the security concerns of the participating countries."With security becoming an issue in the neighbouring countries, it is important for us to comfort them. We will put up a Beijing-like security bandobust in Delhi."We will put the best foot forward in October and make the right projection so as to satisfy the 71 countries who would be coming for the General Assembly meeting," he said.
