Thakur also mentioned that the government was ready to back the IOA in case of a bid and the state of Gujarat could host the Games if India does get the nod from IOC. In the past India hosted the Asian Games twice and the Commonwealth Games once.

“If India can host the G20 Presidency in such a big way, I am sure the government will be able to pitch in to host the Olympics in the country along with the IOA. We all know that the slots are booked till 2032. But from 2036 onwards, we have hopes and I am sure India will fully prepare and bid for the Olympics,”

The next three editions of the Summer Olympics will be held in Paris in 2024, Los Angeles in 2028, and Brisbane in 2032.

Thakur also added,

“India is ready to positively bid for it. There is no reason for us to say ‘No’. If India is putting in so much effort to promote sports, I can assure you that we will not only host the Olympics, but we will also host it in a big way. This is the right time to host the Games. If India is making news in every sector from manufacturing to services, then why not in sports? India is looking very seriously at bidding for the 2036 Olympics,”

He believes that Gujarat is the perfect venue to host the Olympics in the past and with appropriate infrastructure to host the upcoming Global Games. He said,

“Gujarat has several times expressed interest in hosting the Olympics. They have the infrastructure — from hotels, hostels, airports, and sports complexes. They are serious about the bid. It’s also part of the state government’s manifesto to host the Olympics in Gujarat,”

Thakur feels if India can grandly host the G20 Presidency then the government of India is more than capable of hosting the Olympics.
