Peaceful Boycott of the Delhi CWG, 2010 sign now

There was a time I was glad the Commonwealth Games were going to take place in Delhi...but not anymore! With over 28,000 crores (US$ 6,223 million) being spent, I feel ashamed to see where the city is headed. Not only has the government embarrassed us enough, it fails to take responsibility. I now truly feel that we don't deserve to host games of such stature..not unless we are convinced that there is no other way to utilize tax payers money. We could have built schools, built infrastructure, roads, highways, fly overs, improved civic amenities, be prepared for the next monsoon, provide homes to the homeless- basically improve the overall standard of living of our OWN people.
I, today, officially boycott the games and want everyone who is visiting India to attend and participate in these games to know that our country preferred to spend this money on "temporary" infrastructure to please all of you at the cost of its own people. We still get stuck in terrible traffic jams when it rains, our children still go to schools that have broken windows and no toilets, our drains get clogged with bare minimum rains, our roads break away the the thought of rain, builders/bureaucrats/politicians make money at the slightest opportunity they get while allotting tenders to improve the taxpayers standard of living..
So please, don't cocoon yourself to the "world-class" infrastructure made exclusively for you...step out..see what the government has not done on the pretext of organizing the CWG, which too have embarrassed us! The stadiums leak, the cyclist fall, water accumulates in within the stadium premises, machines are leased for 10 times the actual price..and so on...

Delhi is a great city and we wholeheartedly welcome everyone who will be visiting. I do hope you have a pleasurable stay and enjoy everything that the city has to offer- but at the same time, witness the games without the political curtains hiding the truth.

P.S: Any guesses on how much of the 28,000 crore has ACTUALLY been spent on infrastructure? My guess- about 20\%!
