Last week, like many weeks before that, saw more news of alleged corruption in the organizing of the Commonwealth Games and demands for Suresh Kalmadi’s removal from the organizing committee. But Kalmadi clarified that he’d resign only if ‘his leaders’ wanted him to, and expressed confidence that he’d complete his full term, which has continued unabated for over 14 years now, and organize the games successfully. Towards the end of the week, there were emotional appeals from humbled citizens and rational editorials from alert editors to support the Commonwealth Games, as the games were a matter of national pride. And it seems Mr. Kalmadi is here to stay. That leads us to ask and analyze where ex-Minister of State for External Affairs Mr. Shashi Tharoor went wrong in handling the allegations of corruption in case of IPL bidding:
