Jan 10, 2017- The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) on Tuesday canceled Suresh Kalmadi and Abhay Singh Chautala's appointment as life presidents. IOA President N Ramachandran said there was no such resolution passed in the Chennai AGM.
Kalmadi and Chautala were elevated to the honorary position at the IOA's Annual General Meeting in Chennai on December 27, shocking the Indian sporting fraternity and leaving the Sports Ministry fuming. The Sports Ministry had issued a show-cause notice to the IOA, threatening derecognize of the sports body if it does not reverse its decision.
