India seems to be going in the right track in order to revive sports in the country and if India manages to win the bid, the venue might well be Ahmadabad.

Sources close to The Tribune have confirmed the recent developments of a formal plan being worked upon to host the Games in Ahmadabad when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach, who is scheduled to visit India later next month in an official visit to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The dates are yet to be finalised but going by the reports, hosting the Olympic Games in 2024 will consume most part of the discussion between the two dignitaries.

Modi has already made it clear that he wants to work at the grassroot level to make India a powerhouse of sports and this certainly will be a great step towards that goal.

Sources also confirmed that sports secretary Ajit Mohan Sharan has already had a word and held discussions with key IOC officials in this regard and invited Bach to visit India in April. Sharan was in Lausanne, Switzerland, last week where the discussions took place.
