    New Delhi: In a new revelation, NDTV has accessed a letter written by the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) to the Sports Ministry in July 2010, urging it to bid for the 2019 Asian Games.

    In the letter, the IOA has mentioned that it would be easy to host the Games as an indoor stadia is already in place for the Commonwealth Games.

    It further mentions that the estimated Asiad revenue is pegged at $450 million with an estimated profit of around $49 million or Rs. 250 crore.

    The letter also talks about the building of a Games Village on the lines of the CWG village which would have a public-pvt partnership, just like the one between EMAAR and DDA.

    It mentions that discussions on the issues have already taken place with the Chief Ministers of Delhi, Haryana and UP.

    The proposed Asian Games Organising Committee is suggested to have a Chairman who would be nominated or appointed by the Government.

    The last date for bidding for the 2019 Asian Games is November 12

    I really wish you success in sports domain, but when I imagine Chinese athletes will attend it I feel unease.

    We should get them 2019.

    Atleast that way they will maintain and clean the already built facilities. Plus i dont think we will have to spend much either this time.

    Loot of CWG is over and they are planning for bigger loot .We have already wasted almost 40-50 % of 70 K crores of rupees in scandals for CWG. we cannot afford to waste so much money . That money should be utilized to strengthen basic infrastructure and to improve defence infrastructure the country.

    there is more to that 70,000crores, does someone have complete break-up of where all that was used, if yes please share.

    to the best of my knowledge it included the renovation of domestic airport, building of T3, delhi-gurgaon express-way, parts of delhi metro, flyovers and the fleet of those low floor buses introduced in delhi based on which the delhi government feels pretty confident that the blue lines need not be reintroduced.

    We will never be able to get complete breakups as Congress Government will try its level best to do a damage control but its huge wastage of money and we should not repeat same mistake in coming 10-15 years at least. We cannot afford to waste so much money on Events like Asiad. Money should be better utilized.

    In Asian Games 2010 China got 199 gold medals, sigh, people are strongly bashing weiqi team, they should get at least one gold then rise the record of Asian Games to 200.

    Chennai or Hyderabad should try for 2019 Asian games and Mumbai or Delhi should bid for Olympics 2020. My choice is Delhi for Olympics though..
