India has started the 2014 Commonwealth Games in bright fashion, winning a number of medals in various events. India is expected to win a number of medals in events such as shooting, athletics, badminton, boxing, judo and India has always been a major force in wrestling, where they stand a great chance in winning the highest number of medals.
The Haryana unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) received a major blow, when it was declared that the party would not be contesting the assembly polls in the state. The national leadership of AAP has gone against the wishes of party's Haryana unit, which was more than eager to contest the polls. The party members from Haryana are disappointed with the party's decision.
It has been four years since the last Commonwealth Games in 2010, which was held in India, where they put up an emphatic display with a tally of 101 medals consisting of 39 gold, 26 silver and 36 bronze medals, helping them attain the second position on their home turf. But, badminton could not produce a great result, as it only won four medals. But, this time around, expectations are high from the badminton contingent.
