Yet more problems for India 2010 Commonwealth Games

India's hopes of using the 2010 New Delhi Commonwealth Games to showcase its capital have hit fresh trouble with a parliamentary committee saying not enough is being done to prepare for the expected influx of visitors.

Affordable hotel rooms looked likely to be in short supply in the city, the committee told organisers, who are already facing criticism for delays in preparations for the Games.

The report is yet another blow to organisers of the October 2010 Games, who are already having to cope with the credit crunch, delays in building work and environmental protests.
