Corruption rides commonwealth games

6 Signatures Goal: 100


The common wealth games is just a month ahead and we are still lagging behind.on that the cost of arrangement has crossed its limits. The bid of 1,899 crore rupees was made during 2003 for hosting Commonwealth Games, but now the estimation is crossing 40,000 crore.

The cost of renovating the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium was Rs. 961 crore; the Indira Gandhi stadium Rs. 669 crore; the Dhyan Chand hockey stadium Rs. 262 crore; and the Karni Singh shooting ranges Rs. 149 crore. A total sum of Rs. 44,459.48 crore was spent on renovations.

On the other hand in the name of commonwealth games  around 350 slum clusters comprising  nearly 300,000 people were demolished and their rehabilitation is still pending.

Its a time where corruption is riding on commonwealth games.

but we have to think at the last who pays the bill.
