CommonWealth or CommonHealth?


The article figures out that the benefits of the local Delhi citizens have been kept at stake for the CommonWealth games.

Delhi is hosting the Coomonwealth games 2010.A lot of construction is going on to meet the standards for all type of luxury Commonwealth requirements.A large budget has been fixed for new hotels,malls and making Delhi look better. Delhi is definetely being decorated as a bride getting ready for her marriage.It has made all of us proud that our country is organizing Commonwealth games.

But there are some of the facts that drew my attention. The heavy budget for Commonwealth games has resulted in higher inflation which can be seen in the financial budget. The prices of most of the items including LPG subsidy have been raised. Moreover the proposal is to hike VAT on items like desi ghee,kerosene oils,wood,inverters etc. The Delhi government is increasing all these prices to raise an amount of Rs 1,100 croree for the Commonwealth Games.

The Delhi government is doing great for the image of Delhi but this has resulted in a burden to the local people of Delhi.Near about 30% population of Delhi is still living below the poverty line. Don't you think it is injustice to those people? They deserve better support from their state government but instead of it they are getting hiked prices. The money reserved for Commonwealth could be used to provide the basic necessities of life to these peolple.

This money could have been used to establish more government hospitals and in providing funds to the present hospitals. Government could have opened more health centres for the poor people. The money could have been used in development of education centres for the poor.

I am opined that hosting Commonwealth game is good for Delhi but not at the stake of the benefits of the local citizen. Seriously a question arises

"Which is prior: Commonwealth or Commonhealth?"
