Badminton C’ship earns Rohri’s ire

LAHORE – Secretary General Pakistan Badminton Federation Aamer Hayat Khan Rokhri has termed the National Badminton Championships being held at Faisalabad from April 8 to 15 as illegal and unauthorised.
He said that Nazar Muhammad Gondal’s federation was dissolved by the Pakistan Olympic Association and hence cannot sanction any championships. Rokhri said in a statement that the National Badminton Championship being held at Faisalabad was illegal as was sanctioned by a defunct and unauthorised federation.
The POA has already dissolved both the federations elected on December 23, 2010, at Lahore and December 24, 2010, at Islamabad and has ordered fresh elections. The POA has authorised Rokhri to act as secretary general PBF till new elections as such. “I have issued notices to all affiliated units for a general body meeting to elect new office bearers to be held at 55-Lawrence Road Lahore,” added Rokhri.
The election will be supervised by a three member panel of the POA. A representative of the Pakistan Sports Board has been invited as an observer.
