disaffiliated RHA and that matter is also in litigation.

the court that there Association is in existence for the last
60 years, managing the affairs of the game in the state and
also has the sanctity under the Sports Act.

India had no right to disband the RHA and grant affiliation to
an ad-hoc body.

Rajasthan High Court Jaipur granted the stay.
