Kalmadi hits out at Aiyar for CWG comment

By Mamatha

New Delhi, Jul 27: Commonwealth Games Organizing Committee chairman, Suresh Kalmadi told that the statement made by former sports minister Mani Shankar Aiyar, regarding to Commonwealth Games is totally anti-national.

Kalmadi said, "With the Commonwealth Games fast approaching, he should know his responsibilities and think before making such a statement. He is an elected member of Rajya Sabha and it is totally an anti-national statement from him."

Kalmadi later added, "No individual can spoil the Games. It is totally irresponsible and ridiculous statement from such a senior person, who has also headed the sports ministry earlier. No Indian national can speak like that.

"If he would have been the minister, the Commonwealth Games would never have come to India," Kalmadi said.

On Tuesday, Jul 27, Mani Shankar Aiyar said he would be unhappy if the Commonwealth Games were a success and that only evil will patronise them. He also criticised the money being spent for the October mega-event.
