SC tames BCCI, Sports Ministry tames IOA, but JKOA remains untamed and anarchic
1/11/2017 11:28:19 PM
Early Times Report
jammu, Jan 11: Even as the Apex Court intervened directly in the affairs of the BCCI by sacking its president and the general secretary, to show it its place and Union Ministry for Sports made arrogant IOA lick the dust over its recent decision to make convicted Suresh Kalmadi and Abhay Choutala its life presidents, the Jammu and Kashmir Olympic Association continues to sustain despite openly trashing guidelines of the State Government, Union Sports Ministry and even the IOC.
Making utter mockery of orders of the Jammu and Kashmir State Sports Council published from time to time in the meetings chaired by the Chief Minister himself in his capacity as president of the apex sports body in the state, The Jammu and Kashmir Olympic association has been reduced to a private limited company by its General Secretary. Interestingly, while tightening his noose on the IOA the Union Sports Minister Vijay Goel had commented, "theIOA has become a private limited company and we shall not allow this anymore".
Interestingly, the Sports Council which is accountable to ensure that its norms are adhered to, has not only turned a blind eye to the violation of norms, but has allowed him to carry on with his misdoings for decades.
Ashutosh Sharma is a case in point who has glued to the chair of the general secretary of the JKOA, an amalgamation of all sports associations of the state since its inception nearly three decades a
Jammu and Kashmir Olympic Association is yet to be taken to task for having failed to take care of the athletes of the state. The association has never bothered about the immensely talented youth of Jammu and Kashmir.
o even as an order of the state sports council no. SC/76-A /5087-6020 dated 18.11. 1997 taken after its 44th meeting chaired by the then Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah clearly rules that "No individual can hold the principal office of any association for more than two terms".
In violation of yet another order of the state sports council, no. SC/76/2801-6 dated 27.8.1998, which states that "No individual can hold more than one principal offices in any sports associations, Sharma who is president of the J&K Amateur Athletic association and General Secretary of the JKOA has included his name in the executive bodies of at least five other associations and construed their constitutions to empower himself for operating the accounts of these associations. Interestingly, the office address of all these associations is 41-B Karan Nagar, Jammu, which is the residence of Ashutosh Sharma. "He is operating the accounts of six associations presently in violation of our norms, but no one objects to this misappropriation" confessed an employee of the state sports council pleading anonymity.
"JKOA has got funds worth lakhs from the IOA in previous years, but Ashutosh Sharma has not utilized a penny for sports or sportspersons of the state. This calls for a vigilance inquiry as these are public funds and cannot be held hostage by few individuals for their vested interests," a renowned sports persons of the state commented pleading anonymity.
