nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programme" said John Smith director of the US Department of the Treasury – Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) "Treasury is working with our allies to counter

| New Delhi | Updated: December 29 2016 10:45 am The decision to make Kalmadi IOA’s life president drew vehement criticism from several quarters as well as from within IOA Top News Suresh Kalmadi’s tenure as Indian Olympic Association ‘life-president’ lasted less than 24 hours as the veteran sports administrator declined the post on Wednesday It capped a day of hectic activity in various quarters with the present Sports Minister and one of his predecessors as well as an influential member of the IOA opposing the appointment of Kalmadi and the other freshly-named ‘life president’ Abhay Chautala The decision at the IOA AGM in Chennai on Tuesday to appoint the former presidents to the largely honorary post had elicited strong reactions with sports minister Vijay Goel who threatened to cut off all ties with the national Olympic body Asking for the resignation or the removal of the two he informed that the government had issued a show-cause notice to IOA Earlier in the day former sports minister Ajay Maken targeted the BJP and its allies saying many of their members were present at the meeting where the decision was taken and it showed double standards of the ruling party as they used to target the UPA government with regards to various scams related to the 2010 Commonwealth Games He said IOA members such as BCCI president Anurag Thakur Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa and Tarlochan Singh had endorsed the two controversial appointments It is learnt that at the Chennai meeting Rakesh Gupta India’s chef-de-mission for the London Olympics had proposed the appointments and it was accepted as there were no dissenting voices By afternoon cracks had started to emerge within the IOA The national body’s associate vice-president Narinder Batra now the president of the International Hockey Federation came out openly against the two appointments Those within the IOA say that it was the furore over his appointment that gave Kalmadi the cold feet In a letter to the IOA president N Ramachandran he said “I thank the Indian Olympic Association for conferring the honour of Lifetime President on me However I do not feel it would be appropriate for me to accept this honour at this time I am confident that my name will be cleared and I will defer acceptance of the honour till such time” BJP vs Congress As is with most sports controversies this too had a political hue On Tuesday in an almost immediate reaction after the appointment Goel had termed the IOA decision “unacceptable” and asked for a report in this regard On Wednesday Maken said the minister should not just pay lip service but take some concrete action in this regard “The best scenario would be for the IOA office-bearers several of whome are members of the BJP and its allies listen to their conscience and call an emergent working committee meeting to reverse the decision” the senior Congress leader said He went on to add “Otherwise the sports ministry should flex its muscle as IOA cannot function even for a day without government support The ministry should also approach the International Olympic Council to put pressure on the IOA for course-correction The government should also support the various PILs that may come up in various courts against the IOA’s move” Maken also took a dig at the BJP and its allies “They used to target the UPA government on the CWG scandal even though it was during our tenure that Kalmadi was removed as the chairman of the organising committee charge-sheeted and even jailed But now under the nose of the BJP they have been made life-presidents of the Indian Olympic Association” Maken also used the opportunity to talk about the Sports Bill 2011 which he had championed “Unfortunately that bill was not passed by the Cabinet The bill debarred public functionaries from taking up posts in sports bodies and would have prevented such controversies” Life-presidents have no executive or voting powers but Maken said the mere presence of Kalmadi and Chautala at meetings will ensure they have their way even now and run the IOA affairs by proxy “Nobody would dare go against their wishes and the two will continue to run the IOA affairs by proxy These days when most decisions by a sports body have monetary aspects it is not right to have people charged with corruption” Goel’s threat Goel said the government respected the autonomy of sports organisations but also wants total good governance transparency and accountability in such bodies “Till Kalmadi and Chautala either resign or are removed we will have no association with the IOA” the sports minister said “Chautala and Lalit Bhanot were the individuals whose appointment as IOA president and secretary resulted in IOC suspending the body” Batra former Hockey India president said he was not invited for the meeting despite being an IOA associate vice-president “I’m not aware what was the thinking behind the decision but am not in favour of it At a time when the BCCI is facing the ire of the Supreme Court we did not need another controversy When we approach sponsors they point to such incidents which do not show us in good light” Batra said “The present IOA constitution does not allow anyone who has been charge-sheeted for any offence under IPC or CrPC that invites a suspension of two years or more to hold any post Chautala himself did not contest the polls after the constitution was amended I don’t know what has changed now” Some in the IOA have argued that there is a tradition of former presidents to be made life-presidents but Batra said that was not the case For all the

removed the screws that held its engine together It was sabotage of the most peculiar natureand there were whispers that someone from the enemy camp had struck But the funny thing was that fingers were being pointed in every direction because there were too many hostile groups within the never-boring Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) This past weekthe same DDCA was in the middle of anothermuch biggercontroversy that threatened to envelopperhaps even overthrowits influential sports committee And since it was triggered by Delhi crickets most celebrated son Virender Sehwageveryone jumped in current playersformer playersfansand the citys cricket journalists (most of whom had run long campaigns against the association that had so far fallen on deaf ears) The DDCA is an organisation that encourageseven inspirescynicism So the whole cricket fraternity was suddenly at its cynical bestremembering only in flashes that this was not just an opportunity to vent its frustration but also to examineif not redresssome of the associations systemic ills The DDCA functions on a two-tier system First is the executive committeeelected by its members on the basis of the oft-maligneduniversally deridedproxy votes There have been allegations that some of the voters have been dead for years but little has been done to prove or disprove charges of fake polling These executive committee members are not usually former cricketersand are more interested in running the associations administration (dhanda paanithey like to call it) rather than its on-field affairs Then there is the sports committeewhich is elected by the affiliated cricket clubs Constituted 15 years ago to play an advisory roleover time it casuallybut carefullygrew in power to virtually take over the running of the game Things reached a point that it has now become the all-important C in DDCA But while most of the charges of nepotism against it may hold waterthose who want this committee abolished must also remember two important points: 1 The associations problems are much older than the sports committee Its just a new name for the corruption that has existed in the system for years 2 It is the only body within the DDCA thatat least constitutionallyrepresents people directly connected with cricketand not politicians and businessmen Ideallya change within the committeerather than doing away with it entirelymay be more suitable Having said thatthere is no doubt that the sports committee needs to be brought down a few hundred notches Since its members represent the local cricket clubsallowing them inordinate power in selection matters causes a natural conflict of interest Each member tries to get his own players into the team in order to maintain his clubs influenceto protect his position as the clubs representative in the DDCAand because he gets his way so easilyto even slip in a family member or two Sehwagjoined by Gautam Gambhir and some of their other colleagueswanted more than anything to clip the sports committees wings And while the saga ended on Tuesday with lip service from DDCA president Arun Jaitley who promised to hunt for people with integrity and spine its logical to assume that Sehwag has been assured that at least a chunk of his demands will be met But the problem runs deeper than that The bigger picturewhich may remain ignoredis that the answer should not be a Sehwag-centric stop-gap arrangement It cannot only be about the Delhi skipper getting his way while hes playing for the teambut about finding a long-term solution for how badly Delhi cricket is being run In factsince the agenda has been setwhy restrict this discussion to Delhi The degrees may wary the DDCA is clearly the worst example but the issues in every state association are strikingly similar By rising up for whatever reason (his immediate provocation hasnt yet been revealed)Sehwag has given Indian cricket a chance to introspect a rare luxury in this frantic Twenty20 age
