CGF not to deal with Chautala

New Delhi, Jan 29, 2013, PTI:

In line with the International Olympic Committee not recognising the current IOA dispensation, the Commonwealth Games Federation has also decided that it would not deal with the Abhay Chautala-led officials in preparations for next year’s CWG in Scotland.

In a letter to IOC member Randhir Singh, CGF Chief Executive Officer Mike Hooper said that the Commonwealth body’s recent Executive Board meeting took the decision to recognise the IOA led by V K Malhotra, who was the acting chief before the controversial December 5 polls which had elected Chautala as president.

“Further to ... a broad range of correspondence recording the IOC Executive Board’s decision to suspend the IOA, this correspondence was tabled and discussed by the CGF’s Executive Board at its recent meeting in Samoa held on January 24th, 2013. Correspondence from the IOC and also Dr Lalit Bhanot was also considered,” Hooper wrote in the letter.

“... the CGF will, in accordance with the position taken by the IOC, continue to recognise Mr V K Malhotra as Acting President and yourself as Secretary General.

“By copy of this advice to Mr David Grevemberg, Chief Executive and Kate Randall, Director of Games Family and Protocol at Organising Committee for 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow they will also update their records accordingly and all future correspondence associated with preparations for India’s participation within these Games will be directed through you for appropriate action,” the letter said.

Hooper, however, said that the CGF would review its position at its next Board meeting expected to be held in June, in case there is a resolution in the case of India’s suspension by the IOC.
