Conmenwealth Games

June 08 2010

In the game of the Commonwealth, there is nothing common about the wealth. It is at the directions of a select few that the preparations are going on. Obviously, a few big political players are involved in this game. The committee which decides the `last minute contractor award’ or any work of temporary nature which is given to a company is run solely by Suresh Kalmadi, Bhanot and their secretary Koda. Recently the tenders which have been invited for an ordinary job also contain the condition that only those companies can take part in the bidding which have experience of supply items for the Olympics. It was a condition which immediately meant that all Indian companies were barred from bidding because from could they have got the experience of the Olympics? Of the four companies which qualified for this, one was of Spain and another was of Hongkong. Interestingly, this Hongkong company is represented by a senior BJP leader in India who enjoys as much reach in the Congress. His image may be controversial in BJP but he has got a clean chit in the Congress. Sources till us that ideally this entire job should not be worth more than Rs xxx crore, but the adept hands in the game of check mate have so laid out their pieces that this bid could go up to Rs. XXX crore. For the office, the commercial space that is being taken on rent for just two months is costing about five times more than the market rent. The rate at which the tables and chairs are being taken on rent is such that even if they were bought, it would have cost the committee less than half of the amount. The issue is big, so is the money and the related politics. So at whom can the poor people raise their finger, they are all naked in the pool.
