READ MORE: Hopes high from Indian shuttlers at Commonwealth Games India will be expecting a lion's share of medals from shooters, boxers, wrestlers and shuttlers at the 2014 Commonwealth Games starting in Glasgow on Wednesday but it would be difficult to match the record medal haul of 101 in the last edition at home. India aims top three finish in Glasgow Commonwealth Games The 2010 Commonwealth Games was marred with allegations of corruption and missed deadlines but the stupendous success of the Indian athletes and the excellent delivery of the Games made up for all the controversies. The Indians are riding high on their historic success at the 2012 London Olympics, where they won a record six medals, including two silver. But sans home advantage it would be difficult to replicate the success of 2010 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. This time around India have a sizeable contingent of 224 athletes and their main medal hopes will be from shooting, boxers, wrestlers, badminton and hockey. In the last two Games, shooters have won the major chunk of medals for India. They won 27 medals including 16 golds in Melbourne and 30 medals, including 14 gold medals in Delhi in 2010.

Cong slams Laxman, distances itself from Rao's comments

Economic Times 31 minutes ago

With Laxman describing her as a "non-local" and "daughter-in-law" of Pakistan, the tennis player hit back saying she will remain an Indian till death.
Sanya Mirza and her family have deep history and connection with Telangana: Congress spokesperson Rajeev Gowda
Congress today slammed BJP MLA K Laxman over his criticism of tennis ace Sania Mirza being named the brand ambassador for Telangana even as it distanced itself from party MP V Hanumantha Rao, who invoked her marital connection to Pakistan. "Laxman has made all these insinuations against Sania. Sports unites all Indians... Sania has done us proud in Asian, Olympic games. She and her family have deep history and connection with Telangana. This is divisive behaviour which all of us should condemn," Congress spokesperson Rajeev Gowda told reporters here. When it was pointed out that even Congress MP Rao has reportedly said that Sania is married to a Pakistani and so the people will not appreciate her being made the Telangana brand ambassador, Gowda said, "If Hanumantha Rao has said that, we will dissociate ourselves from it." When contacted, Rao said he had objected to Sania's being named the brand ambassador as she is not born in Telangana, but in Mumbai. He suggested that it was former India cricket captain Azharuddin instead who should have been made the brand ambassador as he is born in Hyderabad. "The (Telangana) chief minister is not giving fee reimbursement to students not born in Telangana. How can he then appoint a brand ambassador who is not born in the state," said Rao. Meanwhile, with Laxman describing her as a "non-local" and "daughter-in-law" of Pakistan, the tennis player hit back saying she will remain an Indian till death. "Sania was born in Maharashtra and settled in Hyderabad only later and, hence, is a non-local," Laxman, who is the leader of BJP in the state Assembly, is said to have remarked. He also dubbed her as a "daughter-in-law" of Pakistan as she is married to Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik. The Telangana unit of Congress, too, had described her as being unfit for the honour.

Political parties condemn BJP leader's remark on Sania
Political parties Thursday condemned a Telangana BJP leader for criticising the appointment of tennis star Sania Mirza as the states brand ambassador, saying it was "unfortunate" and "bizarre." Congress MP Renuka Chowdhury said that Mirza is a "youth icon who has brought glory to the country." "On one hand, they say Beti bachao, beti badhao in Parliament. On the other hand, they cannot implement what they are saying. When a man becomes ambassador, it is fine. When a woman becomes an ambassador, people raise such issues. I am very happy she has become Telangana ambassador," Chowdhury told reporters outside parliament. She described the comment as "nonsense". Telangana BJP leader K. Laxman had Wednesday criticised the state for appointing Mirza its brand ambassador saying she is a non-local and "daughter-in-law" of Pakistan. He also alleged that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) did this to appease minorities in view of the coming elections to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation. Mirza hit back saying she will "remain an Indian until the end" and was hurt that prominent politicians and the media were wasting precious time "on a petty issue of my being appointed the brand ambassador of my state Telangana." Describing the BJP leaders remark as "bizarre" and "unfortunate", Congress leader Manish Tewari said: "If you look at this in a wider perspective, ever since this government has come to power, there seems to be a calibrated attempt to try and polarize and keep the communal temperatures in this country soaring." Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati expressed happiness that the Telangana government has named Mirza as the states brand ambassador. "It is not right to bring politics into everything. This will create communal disharmony," she added. While TRS MP K. Kavitha described the issue as "silly". "Before making any such statements, I only wish the BJP leaders would have just gone through Sania Mirzas records. She has won many awards. "I dont see what the objection is about. I dont think Amitabh Bachchan is from Gujarat, but he is the brand ambassador of the state.. so what is the big deal about Sania Mirza representing Telangana," said Kavitha whose party is in power in the state. Seeing the agitated opposition, BJP leader Prakash Javadekar clarified the partys stand, saying the tennis champion was "Indias pride". "Sania Mirza is a pride of India and has an international standing of her own. So, we have no objection. She is the brand ambassador of India," the parliamentary affairs minister said. But senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi was more critical of Laxman. "If someone makes such statements, it reflects his culture."
