The Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju of india has requested the authorities to intervene the elimination of shooting from the 2022 Commonwealth Games at Birmingham over.
India won seven gold medals at the sport at the 2018 Games on the Gold Coast, Australia.
But it has been excluded in the Games.
At a letter into Nicky Morgan, he wrote: »The public takes keen interest in shooting. »
His correspondence with the secretary of state Digital, Culture, Media and Sport also noted that India constitutes over half 2.4 billion population of their 53-nation Commonwealth.
While he also added that »the worldwide Mobility Federation [ISSF] has given to share the cost for addition of shooting Birmingham.
« It seems the choice to exclude shooting is based on the grounds that shooting hadn’t ever been a sport that is compulsory and there’s absolutely not any place available for holding shooting events. »
Shooting was included in each Games besides one since 1966 (Edinburgh from 1970), but isn’t among their event’s’core sports’.
Shooting – along with beach volleyball, archery, cricket and Para-table tennis – voiced its wish.
An evaluation panel comprised of Birmingham 2022’s organising committee, as well as representatives from national and local government and Commonwealth England, was setup to assess the case of each sport.
However, in June, Birmingham 2022 announced that Para-table tennis, just beach volleyball and women’s cricket was successful.
The move has proved contentious, if the sport is not reinstated, using India threatening to boycott the event.
India topped the desk for shooting the 2018 Games in Australia, claiming 16 medals.
