  1. China did it last year..Why can't we do? Successful completion of the CWG will send a positive signal to the world...India is safe any mega event...

  2. Vedanta had earlier tried for civil servants.. now it is trying for army officers..must be to discipline those civil service babus!!

  3. Successful completion of CWG definitely give positive signal but security is not that high if any mishap happens at that time..

  4. You are wrong.. You can say that security is so good that no mishap happens at that time..

  5. That's not the right way to said that china did this last year then why can't we do.. Because first all situations have to see and after that we will definitely do this in India also..

  6. Hey Anonymous..

    its right way to say that because if China did anything than why can't we??
    I don't think that there are such situations that we can't do anything..

  7. i don't understand that why am i wrong.. It is a truth
