Sports ministry suspends IOA over appointment of Kalmadi and Chautala

Indian Olympic Association has been suspended by the sports ministry over their decision to appoint Suresh Kalmadi and Abhay Singh Chautala as its life presidents.

The suspension would continue until IOA reverses its decision to appoint Kalmadi and Chautala.

Vijay Goel, Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports tweeted and said,”Govt. has SUSPENDED the deemed recognition, granted by it to Indian Olympic Association until #IOA reverses its decision. #Kalmadi #Chautala”.

Cracking the whip on IOA, sports ministry took this surprise decision as there was no reply to government’s showcause notice. The IOA, in turn, had sought 15 days time from the sports ministry.

The suspension means that IOA would not continue to enjoy the privileges and prerogatives bestowed on it by the government as the National Olympic Committee.
