Couple of weeks back Mr. Suresh Kalmadi had announced that Commonwealth Games would be World’s best and at par with Beijing Olympic Games. Personally, I was taken by surprise with that statement. I would be happy even if we are able to host half decent games.
With so many delays, controversies and corruption surrounding the Commonwealth Games, it is hard to imagine that CWG would be a hit. Hence, we decided to ask our readers about what they think.
We asked a simple Question:
Will the Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010 be World Class?
and here is what our readers had to say
We received total of 529 votes and 40.45% people said that they think these Commonwealth Games would be world class, while 13.61% said they are not sure (which means they think it is possible). 45.94% respondents however, said that this years CWG has no chance of being World class.
For me this is a surprising result. When I started the poll, I has thought that ”NO” would get 75% votes if not more. However, close to 54% people think that CWG will be world class or atleast there is possibility (the “maybe” ones) of it happening.
Here is the poll that we had put up:
Is there really a possibility of CWG being world class – or I am just being too pessimistic ?
