Paisa and Khana

The Commonwealth Games will be held in New Delhi in Oct 2010. The cost of constructing the venues for the Games has already gone up 250 per cent, from Rs 1,000 crore to over 2,400 crore. And the final accounting has not been completed as yet.

Now, the Chairman of the CWG has spent Rs 29.29 lakhs on snacks , during the 57 meetings that have been held so far. That amounts to Rs 51,385.96 spent on eating and drinking during every meeting. Assuming there are 50 members in the committee and 50 extra assisting , it is mind boggling to realise that they have been busy eating on an average Rs 500 worth of stuff, each, in each meeting.

Meanwhile, athletes in camps across India, continue to crib about inadequate facilities, unacceptable food and water, and careless and intimidating management.

Must be a coincidence, I have just published a post on this subject in my blog post.

And if the final accounting does tell us that more paisa went for Khana and to the pockets of those surrounding the Chairman, will we care?

These will be the same ppl who will be cribbing that athletes don't get enough financial support that they need to exceed in the games...
