Govt to seek opinion of NSFs
In a bid to chart out a roadmap to resolve the issue of India's ban by the IOC, the government has decided to seek opinion of the National Sports Federations (NSFs) on the contentious Sports Code.
The decision to seek the opinion of NSFs was taken after a meeting of sports minister Jitendra Singh, sports secretary PK Deb, VK Malhotra and Randhir Singh.
