I just came across the interview given by Mr. Suresh Kalmadi, the President of the IOA. The man who is heading the organization of this event. Hosting of Commonwealth games has been marred by controversies, especially due to the amount that has been spent for this event and also the constant delays in bringing up the Infrastructure.
Brushing all the controversies aside, Mr. Suresh Kalmadi has gone ahead and said that these Commonwealth Games will be the best world has ever seen, infact, would be even better than the Olympics village at Beijing. Here is the Verbatim transcript of what he has said.
Just 80 days to go for the Games. How confident are you?
Very confident. It will be the best Commonwealth Games ever. I have been saying this for a long time and I am saying it again. We have the best Games village in the world, perhaps better than the Olympics village at Beijing and the stadiums are truly world class. All planning is on track and we are making sure everything will be ready on time.
Do you agree with what the respected minister has predicted ? Let is know what you think
Personally, for me, I have huge doubts. I visited Delhi a couple of weeks back and was near to the Olympic village – From what I saw it is still very much “Work in Progress”.
Let us know what you feel !
