Cancellation of registrations: Sports persons demands probe against associations

JAMMU, Apr 17: State Sports bodies need to first put their own house in order before they showcase to the sports world their growth, organisational ability and money-spending power by hosting the national as well as state level competitions.
The year of the Games has begun with each day bringing in news, which should embarrass all those who believe that our inefficient and corrupt past is behind us.
If the news that the 50 State sports bodies registration under society act have been cancelled for not complying norms under society act. They have been given ample time by the Registrar of Society,J&K, but their approach were totally casual , today we have players revolting against their Sports bodies by not holding the camp for the nationals.
Much before disasters struck, we were faced with a situation where the Jammu and Kashmir Olympic Association could have been derecognised ny state govt which has become a chronic disease with them.
That the use of performance-enhancing drugs is rampant in state sport is a well-known secret with payers being the prime culprits after recovering a lot of used syrings outside indoor Hall, MA Stadium Complex.’. It is difficult now to keep count of those having been found guilty.
In a sport, which can bring us a clutch of medals in the national Games, State was told to change its JKOA office-bearers or face sanctions. It would have meant not being eligible for the Games. The State Sports bodies did comply with these orders by juggling the posts of the same set of people. What a crass joke, if it can be called that. The State Sports bodies could still face a ban if the federations gets to the bottom of this skulduggery.
The State Sports bodies are blaming the wrong interpretation of rules, which do not allow them to give membership to the employees with out prior permission from govt just for only one term to their state bodies. This could very well be true, and if so, a probe needs to be ordered to find out whether the allegations that the State Sports bodies officials making govt employees as members for years, are true or not.
The JKOA scene is getting murkier by the day. Much as after the death of Sardar Rangil Singh, The JKOA has added more filth to the cesspool called State associations .
The State Govt has expressed its displeasure at the way elections for JKOA is being planned, making it impossible for fair and transparent voting to take place.
After govt has cancelled registration of State sports bodies , and now the players have revolted, demanding a high level probe against those State Sports bodies befooling sportspersons.
No wonder, State sports bodies are smirking today and all those who wish a better future for state sports are left tearing their hair.
