Ramachandran that he "would be solely responsible if a bid for hosting the 2019 Asian Games is not made in time before the deadline of July 1." Mehta, in a letter to Ramachandran, claimed that 85% of the IOA members "have given their consent to bid for the Games." Mehta: "I now hope that you will submit the bid for the 2019 Asian Games by or before July 1, 2014, and will not let the IOA, its members and the sport loving people or your country, down by not submitting the bid" (MUMBAI MIRROR, 6/20).
