Indian workers allege exploitation

Families denied basic facilities in Delhi's push to meet Commonwealth Games deadline.





    India has less than a year before the start of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi.

    It is the biggest international sports event the country has hosted in two decades.

    But as pressure mounts to complete venues on time, there is growing criticism over the treatment of workers.
