IOA constitutes Ad Hoc committee to supervise operations of WFI
Indian Olympic Association (IOA) today constituted an Ad Hoc committee comprising Bhupinder Singh Bajwa as Chairman, MM Somaya and Manjusha Kanwar as Members. The committee is given the responsibility to observe and supervise the operations of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI).
It will also handle the tasks related to athlete selection, submitting entries for athletes to participate in international events, among others.
The Indian Olympic Association in its order said that it has found that the recently appointed President and officials of WFI have made arbitrary decisions in violation of constitutional provisions.
IOA further said that the officials overturned the rulings of the IOA-appointed ad hoc committee without following due process. It added, this not only highlights a governance gap within the Federation but also signifies a noticeable departure from established norms.
