Not happy with the attitude of
sacked Commonwealth Games OC chairman Suresh Kalmadi, then
Sports Minister Mani Shanker Aiyar had sought to relieve his
ministry from channelling funds for the sporting extravaganza.
Acting Indian Olympic Association President Vijay Kumar Malhotra said that Sports Ministry should also share the blame for doping scandal that rocked athletics, saying that coaches and doctors involved in it are its employees.
A miffed Indian Olympic Association on Friday hit out at the Sports Ministry for not
involving it in tomorrow`s merger talks to resolve the
long-standing dispute between Hockey India and the Indian
Government has sought the response of Commonwealth Games Organising Committee within a week on alleged irregularities in executing several contracts which were pointed out in the high level Shunglu Committee report.
