Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) commissioner Praveen Singh Pardeshi admitted that the construction of the Balewadi-Baner road, which is a link from the city to the stadium, would be considerably delayed beyond the August deadline.

Pardeshi told IANS: "We will be able to give only a transportable road before the games. Earlier, we had planned a hundred-foot fully equipped road with all the facilities, but all that we will not be able to achieve."
The reason, he added, was a delay in starting the road construction project.
He also said that Rs.1.5 million had been allocated for the city's beautification project that involves green patches and flowerpots along the roads and major intersections of the city.

After visiting the works and listening to kids and villagers, I have realized why people from abroad too appreciate the efforts of this grass-root level organization, said Praveen Pardeshi of UNDP.
