New Delhi: The IOA Meeting was witness to some drama on Sunday when the National Rifles Association of India (NRAI) President Raninder Singh was asked to leave the meeting due to a pending court case against the shooting body.
The NRAI had suffered a setback when the Delhi High Court declared the shooting body’s April 6 elections this year as null and void. During the meeting, Raninder raised the issue of whether an NRAI representative could be a part of the proposed IOA’s Athletes Commission. Responding to this, Raja Sidhu, waved documents related to the court case and asked whether NRAI was even authorised to call itself the national shooting body. Sidhu then asked Chairman S Raghunathan to rule on the matter. Raghunathan, asked member and lawyer R K Anand to deal with the issue after which Raninder was asked to leave the meeting.
