CSI writes to IOC on 'corrupt' IOA

New Delhi, April 6, 2013, PTI:

Clean Sports India, a movement for corruption-free sports in the country, has written to the International Olympic Committee, accusing acting Indian Olympic Association president V K Malhotra of protecting corrupt and inefficient system under the garb of “autonomy.”

In a letter to IOC president Jacques Rogge, CSI convenor BVP Rao and president Ashwini Nachappa questioned Malhotra’s plea to the IOC that the “Government of India is hell bent on destroying the autonomy of IOA and National Sports Federations.” “The autonomy of Indian sports federations and IOA which Mr Malhotra is talking about has produced only one individual gold medal in the Olympic Games from a country of over one billion people,” the letter to Rogge read.

CSI’s letter to the IOC also highlighted how the corrupt and inefficient system has produced several tainted officials like Suresh Kalmadi, Lalit Bhanot and Chautala brothers — Abhay Singh Chautala and Ajay Singh Chautala.

CSI has also requested the IOC to send a high level delegations to India to study the ground situation by meeting all stake holders. “We request you to send a high level IOC Mission to India for a week to study the ground situation,” the letter said.
CSI accused Malhotra of deliberately delaying the process of getting India’s ban from the Olympics lifted by the IOC for his “vested interest.”

A meeting between the representatives of the suspended IOA, the Ministry and the IOC, to find a way to resolve the issue that led to India’s ban from the Games, had been postponed because of the standoff.
