India not to bid for 2019 Asian Games

The corruption charges against the Commonwealth Games 2010 forced the Indian government not to bid for the 2019 Asian Games. The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) had sought to bid for the Asian Games.

India hosted the first edition of the Asian Games in 1951. The last time it hosted the Games was in 1982.

While the Commonwealth Games 2010 are the biggest sports extravaganza India will be hosting so far, the corruption allegations and delay in completion of projects have forced the government not to take any risk.

The CVC has alleged large-scale corruption in CWG projects and sought a CBI probe into the scams. Later, the CWG Organisaing Committee led by Suresh Kalmadi faced money laundering charges, involving a UK company
