India battles to save scandal-hit Commonwealth Games
NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India scrambled against the clock to save the Commonwealth Games after big ticket athletes quit the showcase event and nations threatened to stay home unless authorities cleaned venues “unfit for human habitation.”
Scotland delayed its departure to New Delhi and Wales gave organizers until later on Wednesday to guarantee that the venues and athletes’ village are safe. The New Zealand swimming team is seeking a “Plan B” should the event be canceled.
Commonwealth Games Federation president Michael Fennell, who said the two-week event suffered from filthy conditions, will arrive on Thursday for a probable meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
So if they come here to work in health care, how safe are you when they have that kind of worldview?
