A billion of us got kicked out of the Olympics representing India because of the actions of a few corrupt men!
But if we support our athletes now we can hit sports corruption for a six!
Our national sporting bodies are havens of corruption and cronyism - stuffed with businessmen and politicians unfit, in all senses, to run them. That’s why our international record in most sports is so terrible and why we got ejected by two international sports bodies this week.
Our athletes are cheering because finally the government might be pressured to pass a sports reform Bill.
main blockers are ministers in the Cabinet
who also control sporting bodies!
Only a public outcry, by sports-loving, corruption-hating Indians can blow the whistle on sports corruption.
Let’s call on all the Opposition parties to fight for the sports reform Bill and pressure the government to act.
When over 50,000 of us have signed, we will stage a mock awards ceremony outside the Sports Ministry, giving out black medals to these corrupt insiders blocking reform.
Sign now to save Indian sports!
