Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) chief executive Mike Hooper on Sunday withdrew his offensive remarks against India for the mess surrounding the Commonwealth Games and said the delivery of the event was a collective responsibility of all the stakeholders.Hooper had earlier shrugged off the CGF’s responsibility for the delivery of the Games and had put the blame squarely on the organising committee and other Indian stakeholders.”We’re at the hands and the mercy of, effectively, the government of India, the Delhi government, the agencies responsible for delivery of the venues. They consistently failed to meet deadlines,” Hooper was quoted as saying by TVNZ.”Now, we were very active, very strong in pushing for this to be done. The actual venues were not handed over effectively and I say handed over from the point of view of getting venue- completion certificates and occupancy certificates,” he had said.But only a few hours later, the Kiwi retracted his remarks, admitting that the CGF too was responsible for the implementation and delivery of the Games.”What I stated in relation to the responsibility of the delivery of the Games rests with the Indian stakeholders – government of India, Delhi government, Indian Olympic Association (IOA) and the organising committee (OC),” Hooper said in his clarification.”The CGF does not have the resources just as the IOC, which conducts the Olympics. The CGF has limited resources and when India won the bid, promises were made to what would be delivered for the Games and the participating athletes.advertisement”Together with the stakeholders, we (CGF) look at the implementation and delivery of the Games,” he added.Hooper also rubbished claims that he ever held the growing population of India responsible for the traffic snarls, which was deemed as an insult to the country by many.While the beleaguered OC has been under the hammer for every problem associated with the Games, the role of Hooper, who has been in the Capital to monitor the preparations for the last three years, has gone unnoticed.Hooper did voice his concerns last year about the way the Capital was preparing itself for the Games, which even turned his relation sour with the OC.But soon after, his growing concerns disappeared and, once in a while, he used to come out to express his satisfaction about the functioning of the OC and its preparedness for the mega event.Just as the chorus against the OC began to increase, Hooper too joined the bandwagon and raised all sorts of question marks on the success of the Games.However, Hooper continues to make his characteristic flip-flops and a few days after he joined the international delegations in their stinging assessment of the facilities at the Games, he has mellowed down.”We look at the delivery of the Games and, by and large, all those things have been done. Yes, we have had some snags and we acknowledge that.We are working to address those snags like the Games Village. Things have started moving with the bright sunshine for the last few days but it does not mean that everything is perfect,” he said.
