We are going to outrightly reject the Bill tomorrow. We will put forward our views to the government,” Malhotra, who is also President of the Archery Association of India, said.IOA Secretary General Randhir Singh said, “This is a large Bill and it has to be debated upon.”The issues being addressed in the Bill include demand for 25 per cent reservation for sportspersons in the election to various sports organisations, transparency and secret balloting in elections, sexual harassment of sportspersons and anti-doping law.advertisementIOA has also convened a meeting of its Executive Board on May 24 in the wake of the arrest of its President Suresh Kalmadi on charges of corruption.Maken has already asked the IOA to conduct fresh elections but Malhotra has rejected the demand.- With PTI inputslast_img
