It’s been over twenty days since they were appointed the Brand Ambassadors of the Commonwealth Games 2010, but they haven’t had a single official meeting on the matter yet.

Olympian Vijender Singh says that though a meeting was scheduled for Friday, it was cancelled at the last minute. “They told me they cancelled the meeting, par kya kya karna hain woh nahin bataya,” said the boxer.

World shooting champion Abhinav Bindra seems upset about the matter: “People ask me when the door-to-door activities mentioned by the OC earlier will start, but I have no idea. I am promoting the Games in my personal capacity, but that is all.” Boxer MC Mary Kom says, “I know that one meeting was cancelled. But, I don’t know what my role is. Everything is being delayed.”

Athlete Samaresh Jung says he hasn’t even heard of any of the conferences. “Some float was to happen on August 14, but I have no idea that it got cancelled. I don’t know anything on what’s happening,” he says. Wrestler Sushil Kumar was told there may be a meeting today, August 16, but that too was shelved. “Let’s see what happens next week. We just hope everything works out well,” he says.
