Five-star hotels have offered their House Cleaning staff to help out with the cleaning effort in the Commonwealth Games village.
The poor hygiene standards of athletes’ accommodation has attracted attention from the world’s media and contributed to low morale among participants.
Top hotels including the Taj Hotels Resort and Palaces have therefore contributed to the cleaning drive, with their housekeeping departments helping to bring standards up to par in the athletes’ village in time for the games, which are scheduled to begin on October 3rd.
A diplomatic source told the Economic Times: “Heavy duty equipment has been moved in by five-star hotel chains.”
A Commonwealth Games Organising Committee added: “Several flats had ‘pan’ (betel nut) stains. It was difficult to remove them with normal cleaning detergents.”
Asian and African diplomats expressed concern over cleanliness, while the Scottish contingent also recently complained about filthy conditions. The flats for the Australian, Canadian and New Zealand teams were said to be relatively better.
Around 7,000 athletes and officials from 71 countries and territories are expected to take part in the Commonwealth Games, which will take place between October 3rd and 14th. The games represent the largest sporting event to take place in India since the 1982 Asian Games.
