Today I am feeling proud as India is performing outstanding in the commonwealth games.
I congratulate all the winners of the Commonwealth games and I must say that you people have made India proud once again. Indeed, it’s a matter of joy for all of us and we wish all our winners will continue to make India proud. India has competed in all except four editions of the Commonwealth Games: starting at the second Games in 1934. India has also hosted the games once, in 2010. The most successful event for India in these games is shooting.
I am proud of the bronze medal-winning effort of the women’s hockey team. It is certain that every Indian is proud of the exceptional team. India has a very special relation with Hockey. Thus, it is certain that every Indian is proud of our exceptional women’s Hockey team for winning a bronze medal. This is the first time in many years that the women’s team is on the CWG podium. I congratulate everyone for a hard earned and well-deserved medal. You people have pursued sports diligently and with utmost passion. India’s success is going to play sports more popular. My best wishes for her future endeavours.
