Amity students volunteer for CWG 2010

It was a wish come true for all the students of Amity, when Manjushree Roy-Head, Volunteers Programme and Training of the Organizing Committee of the Commonwealth Games (CWG) visited Amity University to select 150 sports specific, hospitality specific and security specific Volunteers for the "Test Games" preceding the CWG.

Amity will provide over 500 volunteers for the upcoming CWG.

During her interaction with students, Roy outlined the various volunteering options available for students during the CWG, responded to queries and cleared the doubts of the students regarding the volunteer programme.

Describing the CWG as a mega event, wherein over 71 countries and 8,000 athletes will be participating, he said the success of the event would depend largely upon the volunteers and how they conducted themselves.

He assured the volunteer that they would make unparalleled careers for themselves in their life ahead.

Providing vital information regarding the CWG volunteering programmes, Roy said: "The task of organizing the Commonwealth Games is monumental. Various institutions like Amity University, NCC, NSS, and Ministry of Tourism have joined hands with the organizing committee of Commonwealth Games provide volunteers for Commonwealth Games, thereby supporting the organizing committee and building confidence in it for successfully holding CommonwWealth Games in India."

"There are 23 venues and over 40 training venues with 36 functional areas, including hospitality, security and sports in Commonwealth Games, wherein the volunteers can contribute as per their attitude and skills along with the paid staff. There will be four kinds of training that will be imparted to volunteers once they clear all the selection rounds, namely General Training, Role Specific Training, Venue Specific Training and Leadership Training. It is very important for the volunteers to attend the training. It is only after that their reports regarding the performance during the trainings is found satisfactory, students will be confirmed as volunteers," she added.

Motivating the students to give their best during the Common Wealth Games as volunteers, she said, "India is being looked at by the world over. Every volunteer is not just contributing to Organizing Committee but to India. This moment is ours. Every Indian has to own up the games, all those hands coming together will make Common Wealth Games a real success. We are hosting Common Wealth Games because we are capable of doing it and not just for the sake of hosting them."



Smt. Manjushree Roy is not a professional Sports Managment experts. She had been dismissed from the Sports Authority of India, from the post of Assistant Director for submitting her forged Academic Certificates. He husband Mr. S.S. Roy is working as Director in the Sports
Authority of India.He was also under the disciplinary inquiry of the CBI along with his wife Mrs. Manjushree Roay. The Commonwealth Organising Committee had done a blunder by assigning the responsibilities of the Volunteer Operation. Though the Game will be completed but the Voulunteer programme will be a complete failure. As the trainer of the volunteer has got no experience either for acting as Volunteer in any National Lever Games or Training the Volunteer. Where as the memeber of the All India Council of Physical Education had offer free services of the trained Physical Education Professors / Readers / Teachers and Students to the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee and the Govt. of India. The Director General of the Volunteer Operation also called the Secretary General of the All India Council of Physical Education to discuss the matter. But he asked a ransom of Rs. 3,00,00,000.00 (Rs. Three Crores) for awarding the training of the Volunteership. Which was denied by the Secretary General of AICPE. Therefore, the Training of the Volunteership was awarded to the Amity University. Where as there is not even a single person qualified in Physical Education and Sports with MPEd and Ph.D in Physical Education. The training which was schedule to begin from March 2010 had been started in the month of June 2010. Which is also not on the venue. I am afraid how the Volunteer will be able to perform their duties in their best ways. Only God can save the Volunteership of the trained Volunteer by Amity for the Commonwealth Games under the leadeship of Mrs. Manjushree Roy.
