With each passing day there are news on the unhealthy conditions of the facilities for atheletes, the foot over-bridge collapse, star atheletes backing off etc., which has cast a doubt on India ability to organise an international sporting event in the country.
The comment by the general secretary of CWG Organising Committee that "foreigners have different standards of cleanliness", raises question of the mentality and approach of the committee.
When the committee boasts of organising an international event, the facilities should match international standards, and an excuse of different standards is like mocking at atheletes from other countries.
International sporting events like Formula One is coming to the Indian shores next season, Moto GP organisers are interested in having a GP in India, among others.
There is no doubt they would now hesitate before taking a final decision.
Though, F1 Chief, Bernie Ecclestone has confirmed that he is confident in the organising committee associated with the Formula One GP, others sporting associations would think twice.
Formula One and Moto GP doesn't require an infrastructure and facility as huge as that in CWG, but the fact remains that if the CWG is postponed at the last minute or fails, it would be huge black mark on India.
International sporting events are not just about sports, but it also boost travel and tourism for the countries invovled in a huge way.
Hence, it is important that the government interferes and limit any further damage to the country's global image in sports and tourism sector.
