New Delhi: While the country may be enthusiastic about India hosting Commonwealth Games, JD-U chief Sharad Yadav has joined Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar in opposing spending on the mega sporting event, saying it is a ‘wastage’ of money and could involve ‘scams’.
“What Mani Shankar said is totally correct. I support him fully on this. I disapprove of the way money is being wasted on Commonwealth Games,” Yadav, who is also the NDA Convenor said.
Aiyar had a few days back said that when he was Sports Minister till 2008, he had wanted the government not to go for the Commonwealth Games as it was an ‘enormous waste of money’.
Aiyar said the poor will not have access to India’s biggest sporting event.
