WFI to go ahead with EC meeting


Share post:


NEW DELHI, Jan 15: The suspended Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) will go ahead with its Executive Committee meeting here on Tuesday and has vowed not to budge from its decision of hosting the national championships despite the sports ministry issuing a warning against it.
The notice for the Executive Committee was issued on December 31 and most state associations are expected to attend.
It is expected the members will ratify the decisions taken during the General Council meeting of the WFI on December 21, hours after the new office bearers were elected.
The WFI had announced that it will conduct Nationals in Pune from January 29-31, prompting the sports ministry to say that the federation has no authority to conduct the Senior National Championships and any event staged by the body will be considered “unsanctioned” and “unrecognised”. The WFI has maintained that it neither accepts the suspension nor does it recognise the ad-hoc panel. (PTI)
