SureshKalmadiNew Delhi: The Organizing Committee headed by Suresh Kalmadi, a condemned sports organiser, is in dire straits today with over 10,000 volunteers appointed in a hurry and haphazardly, received their valuable kits and Metro Railway passes given to them for voluntary service to the ensuing CWG (starting Oct.4), simply disappeared with whatever benefits they got till now.
y were supposed to get cash for daily service and a certificate for services rendered in Games village for athletes, players and officials from 50 nations, but the volunteers were unhappy with this arrangement. Over 10,000 of these selected volunteers, without any training, could not face the situation in Games village and bolted out. There are hardly 4 days left for CWG inauguration by President Pratibha Patil of India (host) and Prince Charles (Chief Guest from UK). The golden painted Queen’s Baton has arrived in Delhi this week.
The absconding volunteers at CWG had received high quality uniforms and a kit (with materials) worth Rs.12,000 each. Having benefitted from such initial presentations and gifts, the irresponsible volunteers have suddenly vanished from the notorious CWG village.
The complaint was that they were not given attractive duties among the sportsmen of the world. They demanded Daily Allowances (DA) / Travelling Allowances (TA) and not a certificate for their services, it is claimed. These lawless volunteers are now being searched about in the capital, by Police.
About 22,000 volunteers had been taken on the job. It is a tough job to appoint fresh volunteers to the extent of 50% of them, at this late hour.
