Sports Ministry warns WFI of legal action
The sports ministry on Tuesday warned the WFI of legal action after the body defied the government’s orders
Coming down heavily on suspended Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Sanjay Singh for making “baseless and mischievous” claims, the sports ministry on Tuesday warned the WFI of legal action after the body defied the government’s orders and went ahead with the conduct of the unsanctioned and unrecognised senior National championships in Pune.
The ministry fired a fresh salvo following Singh’s statement that around 700 wrestlers would participate in the Nationals from January 29-31 and claimed that all affiliated state units of the WFI would enter their teams for participation.
This despite the fact that the national body was suspended by the ministry on December 24 for violating its own constitution and provisions of the national sports code.
