How safe are Common wealth games?

Two days back, we saw attack on foreign tourists in sensitive Jama Masjid area of Delhi. Attackers even planted a bomb in abandoned Maruti 800 car which failed to explode thus saving lives of many people. Today, Australian TV channel showed a recently captured sting operation conducted in relation to security arrangements during common wealth games which showed that Australian reporter carrying bag full of explosive successfully entered Stadium in the presence of security personals.

According to reports, this explosive was powerful enough to do 200 explosions and reporter bought this entire explosive in one day from Delhi itself. If this sting operation is correct then this further puts many fingers on security arrangements of Common wealth games. Further today, 164-foot long foot-bridge collapsed outside the Nehru Stadium causing injuries to 23 labourers working on bridge site. Athletes, media persons and general public were expected to use this bridge to enter main common wealth games Nehru Stadium; however, this bridge collapsed even before its completion.

A major accident was possible during common wealth games due to this bridge which collapsed today; however, Indian and Delhi governments are trying to undermine this issue by terming this incident as a minor issue related to construction error. Now, there are two types of threat for common wealth game, first threat is from terrorists/criminal elements and second threat is from bad construction work.

Already there are many news of negligence are coming one after another in media which shows that there are many loopholes in security arrangements and construction work which increases concern on safety during common wealth games. It is wrong on the side of all concerned authorises who are conducting these big games with proper planning and arrangements.
