Britain seeks to assuage India over Commonwealth Games shooting row
The British government is seeking to reach a compromise with India over the South Asian country's threat to boycott the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022 over the exclusion of shooting from the programme.
Indian shooters accounted for 16 of the country's 66 medals at last year's Gold Coast Games and its Olympic Association (IOA) will soon make a decision on whether to follow through on its boycott threat.
Wily British can’t be trusted. They always speak with sugar coating. It doesn’t want India to be on the top 3 finishes that’s why all this stagecraft. India knows what this people are. Boycott the games if shooting is excluded from CWG
A country who can conduct Olympics, can't arrange shooting competition in CWG due to lack of logistics is utter foolish and bizzare reason heard off..This is poor way for the advertisement of CWG Federation and it's conduct. No shooting no participation, let all Asian countries come together on this.
There can not be a more stupid reason for leaving out shooting from CW Games. Lack of shooting facility. Then why was England allotted these games. Tomorrow they will say lack of fields for hockey and football or swimming pool for swimming and diving. Lack of infrastructure my foot.
God send opportunity for India to come out of this slaves club games. It will be a well deserved snub for the UK also.
Good opportunity to settle score with UK.

With Brexit looming over its head, UK can ill afford not having the Indian contingent as a part of the 2022 Commonwealth. It can alienate the most populated and among the largest countries in CW. It will give boost to tourism around CW games.
