Hosting F1 race is a criminal waste: PT Usha

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Oct 27 (PTI): In stark contrast to other sportspersons who have given a thumbs-up to the Formula One coming to India, former sprint queen P T Usha says hosting the Grand Prix is nothing but a �criminal waste� of money.

�I feel very bad because such hi-fi business has nothing to do with 99 per cent of Indians. It is a criminal waste (of money). First, Twenty20 cricket spoiled the spirit of Indian sports, and now here comes another avatar which will mostly attract corporate money, who (corporates) rarely spend for sports promotion. Only God can save the Indian sports,� Usha told PTI.
