Sort out affiliation mess, HI told

Mendiratta said he has written to HI, asking them to finalise the list of authorised representatives by January 10 and make the same public. “This is in reaction to the media reports which has portrayed a disturbing picture about what is going on in Hockey India. Before it gets any more murkier and the hockey-loving people of the country start doubting the process of affiliation and election, it’s desirable that the entire process is completed as early as possible,” he said.

“It’s imperative that a list of authorised representatives of all the units who form the electoral college is finalised and made public,” he added.

HI finds himself under fire after Hockey Punjab president Sukhbir Singh Badal accused them of hatching conspiracy against HP after the state body was denied affiliation. The affiliations of hockey units like Jharkhand, Mumbai and Kerala also hang in balance.

Mendiratta said HI should ask all its units to furnish their representatives. At least a day’s gap between filing of nominations and the poll.
