Kalra urges Council to notify recognised associations

Excelsior Sports Correspondent
Jammu, May 7: Ranjeet Kalra, member BCCI and vice president State Wushu Association has urged the J&K State Sports Council to notify the list of all the sports associations recognised under its banner.
Kalra in a letter to the Sports minister and vice president of the Sports Council Er. R S Chib with a copy to its Secretary Kiran Wattal, has requested that a list of all the recognised sports associations be made public and published in all leading dalies of the State. ” It has been observed that many non recognised sports bodies are conducting selection trials and sending teams for the National Tournaments without proper mandate. Such associations not only mis lead the players and their parents but also bring a bad name to the State. No doubt we should encourage new games and make an attempt to popularise them but their legal status vis-a -vis the sports council and the government as to whether they are recognised or not should be made known to public at large,” Kalra said in a statement issued here today.
“As the certificates,medals and positions achieved in these games later become a case of disputed eligibilty the players feel cheated and demoralised. It would be both in the interest of the players and the game that the Sports council periodically notifies the list of recognised associations with a copy to all educational institutions, so that the future of the players is secure and their talent is appreciated at the credible platfoms, Kalra added.
