The 22nd Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, where 72 countries participated, has come to an end. It was a dream to have India’s name on the medal list of these games, but even after winning a couple of medals, India was at the bottom of the medal list – Annamalai Tamil Nadu BJP President
In the 2022 Commonwealth Games, India has won a total of 61 medals, including 22 gold, 16 silver and 23 bronze, and is ranked 4th on the medal list. The success of Indian sportspersons has been hailed from various quarters.
In this case, Tamil Nadu BJP president Annamalai issued a statement on the victory of Indian players in the Commonwealth Games on August 9, “The 22nd Commonwealth Games in which 72 countries participated in Birmingham has been completed. It was a dream to have India’s name on the medal list in these games. Despite winning a couple of medals, India was at the bottom of the medal list. However, today’s ruling National Democratic Alliance government does not take the game as a game.
India has won a total of 61 medals including 22 gold, 16 silver and 23 bronze medals in the current Commonwealth Games held due to the actions taken by the Honorable Prime Minister of India under the leadership of the National Democratic Alliance under the Bharatiya Janata Party. This feat has never been done before.”

இதுவரை இந்தியா பெறாத இடம் காரணம் ஆனால் தற்போது திறமையான வீரர்களை தேடி அவர்களை இங்கு அனுப்பிய @narendramodi தலைமையிலான பாஜக அரசு. அரசியல் தலையீடு இல்லாமல் திறமையை மட்டுமே நம்பியதால் உலக அரங்கில் இந்தியா தலை நிமிர்கிறது.#ஜெய்ஹிந்த்@annamalai_k @CTR_Nirmalkumar @KaruppuMBJP pic.twitter.com/4vKW9WxAuH

Also, the BJP supporters are sharing the list of medals on social media saying that India has won a place in the Commonwealth Games under Modi’s rule, which India has not won so far.
What is the truth?
Annamalai’s information that India has secured an unprecedented position in the Commonwealth Games, and that India was at the bottom of the Commonwealth Games medal list so far, is false.
Before this, under the BJP rule, India was in 3rd place with 66 medals in the 2018 Commonwealth Games held in Australia and 4th place with 64 medals in the 2014 Games held in Scotland.
Indian athletes who participated in the Commonwealth Games held in India in 2010 during the Congress regime won a total of 101 medals including 38 gold, 27 silver and 36 bronze and took 2nd place in the medal list is a feat till date.
Also, in 2006 India stood at 4th position with 50 medals and in 2002 at 4th position with 69 medals. In the last 20 years since 2002, India has won many medals and has been in the first 4 places in the Commonwealth Games. However, BJP leader Annamalai has given false information that India is at the bottom of the Commonwealth Games.
Tamil Nadu BJP President Annamalai has given false information in a statement that so far India has stayed at last place in the medal list of the Commonwealth Games.
Similarly, the information spread by the BJP supporters that India has occupied a place this year that it has not got in the list of the last Commonwealth Games is also known to be wrong.
